Engaging local and community partners to bolster support services for students including introducing and continuing the financial education to our students in an excellent strategy. It could formalize a relationship, bring in new expertise, deliver a new perspective and set of resources for a particular focus area.
In terms of financial literacy, recruiting local banks and other financial institutions to introduce financial literacy concepts, engaging financial aid office staff from a local college to talk about FAFSA and scholarships etc. has shown to be of value to a lot of programs.
Do you offer standalone or series of workshops with special guests from financial literacy organizations or community banks?
Does your program staff deliver workshop modules focused on financial literacy?
