What is Financial Literacy?
Financial literacy is the ability to use knowledge and skills to manage financial resources effectively for a lifetime of financial well-being. Our goal is to help equip students with knowledge and skills to make better decisions about their financial resources. This includes personal finances, investing, budgeting, paying for college, how to protect yourself from identity theft, understanding your financial aid and the FAFSA, preparing for life after college with career and professional development.
