Financial Literacy for Adults

Many adults have difficulty understanding and using financial information. On the Money: Finances Made Easy, LFL’s financial literacy program, helps these individuals understand key topics, vocabulary, and concepts related to managing money. With this knowledge, they can make sound financial decisions.

 

Participants meet in classes—or with a tutor for a hands-on, individualized approach—to improve understanding of their specific financial needs and develop healthy money habits. Participants also learn to use mobile applications and other digital tools related to financial literacy.
