Are You FinLit?
College and university students face many financial challenges, from everyday personal or household budgeting to post-graduation planning. But Education Pay$.
Students can be assisted by their peers through workshops and information provided by students in Stockton's Peer Financial Education Certificate Program.
The Stockton Center for Economic and Financial Literacy (SCEFL) coordinates a peer-to-peer financial literacy program. Student peer educators can provide workshops and information sessions, fact sheets, and references to reliable and unbiased financial information and resources.
Students must have successfully completed a credit-based course related to personal finance to join the peer financial educator program. Student volunteers are not paid, but they are richly rewarded in helping others acquire financial smarts and financial fitness. Employers want students with these kinds of skills—the economic and financial content knowledge as well as the advising and workshop-leading experience. For information about the Stockton Peer Financial Education Program, contact Professor Jean Abbott in the School of Business at Jean.Abbott@stockton.edu
