About

Life’s Lessons in Personal Finance – Financial Literacy Program was developed by a team of 7 individuals that have a diverse background and includes a CEO of small company, a College Instructor, a Grade School Teacher, a Banking Executive, a Sales Associate, a Carpenter, and a Nurse. Further, we have interviewed students, young adults and senior citizens to learn about their real life experiences. They have different income levels and real life experiences all of which have been drawn upon to develop a comprehensive program.

From our research we have determined that the reason they have experienced financial hardship was that they did not fully understanding all of the intricacies of using credit and the impact it can have on their finances. Further, we determined that many of these credit decisions started at the young age of 18 when credit truly became available to them.
