Financial literacy isn’t trendy and doesn’t necessarily pull at your heart strings like many other social issues do. However, the impact is enormous. When we fail to teach financial literacy the result is often poverty. When we do impart this kind of knowledge the result is often success.
The new school year brings new opportunities for the non-profit founded by the Credit Union to reach more students with money smart financial skills. At the end of August, that nonprofit – the Center for Financial Empowerment (CFE) – hosted Mad City Money RECHARGED, a live demonstration and networking event for educators in Southern California.

It’s no secret that teens need to learn smart money skills before they hit the financial pitfalls of adulthood. Without this important training, youth are left to navigate the maze of spending and credit on their own. A few missteps can cost them dearly for years.
For ten years the Center for Financial Empowerment has fought to save young people from destructive money mistakes by delivering financial literacy training in classrooms at schools in disadvantaged communities.
