Record levels of consumer debt, rising foreclosure rates, and mounting bankruptcies are signs that a large number of consumers are financially in trouble. It is critical that consumers understand the impact that credit has on their financial well-being. This interactive Financial Fitness for Life training focuses on how to teach youth and limited resource audiences to “take charge of their credit” and become smart credit managers. Guest speakers from the financial industry talk about the recent credit crisis and what it means for consumers. Participants receive all of the Financial Fitness for Life curriculum materials (teacher guide, student workbook, parents guide, CD-ROM, and web links). The training also provides educators with numerous games, websites, simulations and other activities they can use with their students and clients.
