Why Financial Literacy?
According to a study done by Hartford Financial Services Group, 76% of those who graduate college feel ill-equipped to handle their financial challenges due to a lack of financial education. We see this as an opportunity to help! Listerhill Credit Union was founded with a goal of teaching members in the community how to make wiser decisions with their money. We wish to extend this goal into your classroom. Our financial literacy course gives students a valuable knowledge base that will help them make wiser financial decisions for a lifetime.
