Finances Made Easy
NAFSA is dedicated to making financial literacy accessible for everyone. We are offering six educational series covering a wide variety of financial topics:
- Business 101: Starting and maintaining a small business is no easy task. Our Business 101 series provides the tools you need to build and maintain credit, develop a business plan, and advance your current project.
- Finances 101: Taking control of your finances can be daunting. With our Finances 101 series, we will help you create a budget, learn the ins and outs of savings and checking accounts, credit cards, as well as explore mobile payment options, and more.
- Major Decisions: Buying a house, getting a car loan, or refinancing your mortgage are all significant financial decisions. Use our Major Decisions series to explore what options will help you make the best choice.
- Looking into the Future: Planning is the key to financial success. Our Looking into the Future series will assist you in planning for retirement, managing your investments, and much more.
- Protecting our Elders: As our family members and loved ones age, it is essential that we keep their physical and financial well-being in mind. Planning for or becoming a caregiver, preventing elder fraud, and reporting financial abuse are all topics explained in our Protecting our Elders series.
- Youth Financial Toolkit: Developing good financial habits during youth is vital to long-term financial health. The Youth Financial Toolkit will help our young people navigate the murky waters of banking basics, credit, saving for higher education, and more.
Each educational series has a set of modules. Most modules are three to ten minutes in length and designed to encourage participants to build financial confidence via a series of interactive activities.
