How CAAB's Financial Education Program Assisted a Young DC Professional

Signing up for CAAB's Money Management 101 classes was one of the greatest educational decisions I have ever made. By taking the mystery and technical jargon out of financial education, the CAAB program gave me the information I needed to make smart financial decisions. As a student in the Money Management classes, I learned practical ways to save money, control my spending habits, plan for the future and live within my means.

 

How CAAB's Financial Education Program Assisted a Young DC Professional

 

Signing up for CAAB's Money Management 101 classes was one of the greatest educational decisions I have ever made.
By taking the mystery and technical jargon out of financial education, the CAAB program gave me the information I needed to make smart financial decisions. As a student in the Money Management classes, I learned practical ways to save money, control my spending habits, plan for the future and live within my means.
Since the financial education classes were small and intimate, I was able to develop a personalized budget plan--something that I've avoided for years prior to the class. My mother and I enjoyed taking the financial classes because the CAAB instructors found a way to make complex financial subjects fun, interactive and exciting! While the class only lasted a few weeks, the knowledge that I learned has stayed with me and impacted the way I manage my money.
Since taking the financial education class, I've become a champion for effective financial literacy programs like CAAB!
The CAAB program changed my life for the better, and I recommend that any person, young or old, black or white, take the class. It's never to late to learn critical money management skills!
