Financial Literacy

Being Smart With Money Isn’t Rocket Science. It Just Takes Common Cents.

Needs before wants. Tomorrow before right now. A little bit of everyday money, saved every day, turns into BIG money over time. It’s that simple!

We want this generation of students NOT to repeat the financial mistakes made by adults, elected officials and captains of industry during the past decades. To that end, Community First provides an in-class, informational, participatory (and somewhat entertaining) Financial Literacy presentation to local classrooms. Syllabus includes: ease of saving loose change, coupled with time, overlaid with compound interest, intro of credit scores, and what it all means for college and jobs. Plus Q & A. Takes about 45 minutes, inclusive. To schedule, e-mail our communications guy: dwilliams@comfirstcu.org.
