Financial Literacy

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.

Listerhill's Financial Literacy 101 Course

Personal finances aren’t always  easy to understand. That is why we have made our Financial Literacy 101 Course. The goal of this course is to provide  students with a framework to help them make good financial decisions right now and in the future. By the end of the course  students will  understand the importance of creating a budget, how to differentiate between many different types of loans,  what makes up a credit score and much much more.
