Financial Literacy

 

What Our Campus is Doing:

Virtual In-Class Presentations:

We are working with Jaguar Tracks I Classes to get our Jaguars acquainted with our curriculum! Ask your instructor if you’re interested.

On-Campus Engagement:

Catch us at one of our events or at the Mays Center for Money Coaching Appointments!

Events:

Online Tabling every week! Come talk to our Financial Literacy Graduate Interns or our Fellows!

Money Coaching Appointments:

One-on-one coaching completely tailored to your needs and goals. Meet with a trained money coach to strategize and implement a plan to help you reach your financial goals. Please sign-up through Handshake for a money coaching session. Sessions can be virtual.

Off-Campus:

We are partnering with Junior Achievement of South Texas to work with neighboring independent school districts so younger students can achieve financial literacy and capability before they reach higher education status!

We are also collaborating with GEAR UP, a federal fund that helps low-income districts prepare students for higher education. Right now, we have representatives attending planning meetings and helping out with parent meeting nights at South Side ISD.
