It’s been a few weeks since I last posted, but let me assure you that I’ve kept busy in the financial education world.
Besides attending a credit counseling industry conference in San Francisco, the annual Jump$tart Coalition conference in Washington DC and the National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorney’s conference in New York City, I’ve been able to get a draft together of our new “Everyday Money Academy” course catalog.
The Everyday Money Academy will provide financial education certificate programs to individuals and groups looking for courses in topics ranging from personal and household budgeting to dealing with student loans, from effective consumer behaviors to paying off and preventing consumer debts, and more.

- College Money Management
- Consumer Credit

- Debt Prevention
- Entrepreneur & Money

Here are a few of our more in-depth programs:

Our crown jewel of financial education certification is the “Everyday Financial Visionary” program. To achieve this certificate, the participants must attend 8 credit hours of courses, including 7 set topics and one elective.
These programs are available on site near our offices at no charge other than the possible corresponding workbook for our Everyday Financial Visionary program ($10 each with bulk discounts for orders of 10 or more).
Check out our catalog for the right program for your clients, students, employees or even family members and friends:
I encourage you to take advantage of these programs and our services. Such high quality programs from for profit organizations representing well-known personalities would cost you hundreds of dollars, but because we are a nonprofit with the core mission of educating our communities, we can offer many of our programs at no charge whatsoever.
