The Impact of Financial Education
"Without your training, I would have made some bad decisions about credit cards and spending. A lot of my friends already have credit card debt."
"I learned a lot in the CFE's finance classes, and when I took the National Financial Capability Test, I scored in the top 20%! I won a scholarship because of that, and now I come back and work at the CFE's events to help other teens learn to be smart with money."
"I was really lucky the CFE came to teach at my school. The best things I learned were about paying yourself first and about credit. Now that I'm working, I try to save money from every paycheck."
"Your classes provide a strong foundation for money management that our students really need. I appreciate everything the CFE does to make sure our young adults learn these important skills."
