ID : 10731   
« back to classes page
Adulting is hard. Young adults are thrown into the real world with little-to-no training on how to handle their finances and set themselves up for financial success. Millions of Americans today are living paycheck to paycheck.  What is credit and is mine good or bad? What is insurance and how do I get it? How do I pay my taxes? How do I buy a house? These, among many others, are questions young adults as asking every day.

Join Judith McCoy, certified Financial Education Instructor and Financial Advisor, for a six-week course, designed to help educate teens and young adults in regard to personal finances. Judith will cover a plethora of incredibly important topics affecting young adults today. Your teen will thank you later for this course! See below for a full course outline.
