Class Sessions & Lengths
A session is the “type” of financial literacy class a company or participant is interested in such as Basic Budgeting 101, Avoiding Debt, Understanding Investments, etc. Classes can be topic specific for focused learning, multi-topic for a broader knowledge base, or tailor made to fit a company or organization that is sponsoring the class.
Basic Financial Literacy: these sessions cover the basic concepts of budgets, savings,needs versus wants, money attitudes, understanding credit and credit scores, and avoiding debt.
Advanced Financial Literacy: these sessions cover what is beyond the basics. This includes subjects like methods for saving, creating and obtaining financial goals, retirement planning, understanding investment and insurance products, and being financially prepared to purchase a home.
Focused Financial Learning: these are topic specific and can focus only on one particular aspect of Financial Literacy First. Thus, the company or organization can have a teacher come and only focus on such topics as tax planning, budgets, debt, credit, etc. These sessions can also be set up as a custom tailored learning session where more than one topic can be combined.
Class length is based on hours. Classes are typically taught in 4 hour time periods, or broken up in multiple days, but time and number of days can be adjusted to fit the needs of the organization or company.
