The NFEC is delighted to enter into partnership with LiSA Initiative, an important contributor to the financial literacy movement.
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) March 30, 2015
LiSA Initiative and the National Financial Educators Council kick off a landmark year for financial literacy with the announcement that the two organizations have joined forces to help improve the lives of American citizens. This collaboration will bring financial education resources, workshops, and awareness promotions to communities across the nation.
“There is a growing problem of financial illiteracy in our country today,” Debbie Gerlicher said. “The challenge is most people don’t have access to a basic financial education. They don’t know about the financial concepts, tools and products that can help transform their lives. This joint venture will allow us to bring those types of financial literacy programs to the people who need it most. It will serve as a resource to inform, educate and empower our citizens, especially women.”
LiSA Initiative, sponsored by First Financial Security, Inc. (FFS), was designed to address the financial challenges that American women from all walks of life face every day. By providing education, mentoring, and an entrepreneurial opportunity, LiSA helps women take control of their lives and make positive changes to achieve financially secure futures.
“The NFEC is delighted to enter into partnership with LiSA Initiative, an important contributor to the financial literacy movement,” NFEC CEO Vince Shorb said. “We are well-aligned because both organizations are focused on providing a holistic education – one that extends beyond money and helps with every facet of participants’ lives.”
The collaborative program, set to begin this year, will combine the National Financial Educators Council’s established financial education curriculum with the dynamic financial literacy coursework at the heart of LiSA Initiative to create the LiSA Literacy Project. The partners believe that by providing people with a solid financial education, they will make smart choices and decisions about their money. The practical lesson plans teach such key money management subjects as budgeting, insurance, managing credit and reducing debt, basic investments, estate planning, and retirement strategies.
This collaboration represents an important step forward in the elimination of the financial illiteracy epidemic that has swept the country in recent years. Extending beyond education to include skill development, mentoring and training, the campaign will position Americans to create and protect their wealth, building toward financially healthy futures.
