Special Discussion contd. - Incorporating Financial Literacy in Career and Counseling Services (Feb 7 - 11)
Talking about money and discussing finances and money management behavior is considered a taboo subject or even rude. Money and finance related myths and misconceptions abound. Sound financial education and incorporating financial literacy in education programs seems like an excellent strategy to get this crucial conversation started.
Talking about financial resources, habits, and other money management topics in a one-on-one environment provides a safe and comfortable space to connect, and talk through financial questions, hurdles, and plan for solutions.
Does your program deliver financial coaching in a one-on-one setting?
Can students access support services and more information related to financial aid and financial literacy with a partner organization?
Please share your experiences in delivering financial education in a counseling or advising setting. Are there specific tools and resources that you employ in your practice that you can share with this group.
