Financial Literacy Program

Financial Literacy Program

Economic independence is vital to long-term stability and successful integration in the U.S., but many immigrants come from countries with vastly different financial systems. Understanding and navigating the complexity of the U.S. financial system is an enormous task, especially when considering language barriers and cultural differences. These unique challenges can make immigrants and refugees economically vulnerable, often resulting in financial behavior that can have long-term negative consequences on their household budget and credit profile. As over 90% of Financial Literacy Program participants are of low to moderate-income households, this knowledge is even more vital to their success.

How can I access the classes?

There are a few ways to schedule classes with us: 

  1. If you are part of a partner organization, you can contact them so they can arrange the classes with us.
  2. If you are not part of an organization:
    1. Find a group of at least 5 people and decide if you want to take the classes online, in our Clearwater office, or arrange a location so our staff can go and meet you.
    2. If you don’t have enough people to form your own group, you can always sign in to our waitlist (click here for Spanish) and we will contact you as soon as we have enough people to start a class.

If you would like more information about classes, or to schedule classes for your group, please contact us.
