Session Description

We often believe we are putting on great student workshops and can't understand why students aren't attending these awesome learning opportunities. By adding a personal touch and a little consistency, Marcella and Allen were able to develop an engaging financial literacy program that saw student attendance grow exponentially. They will share what made their financial literacy program successful and what they are planning to do next, all of which are easily adaptable on your campus.
