Financial Literacy in the Workplace

Britepaths can bring Financial Literacy training to your employees or your organization for FREE. Research shows that employees who have a firm grasp on their finances are happier and more productive workers. With that in mind, our financial literacy experts would like to come to your site to help your employees/clients get financially fit.

Using FDIC's Money Smart curriculum, we can provide one-time one-hour budgeting and credit classes or 4-part or 6-part "Credit Smart" courses. Classes are free and available in Spanish. We need a commitment of 10 or more adults to bring this service to your workplace or agency during lunch time or early morning. Students take a pre/post test and Britepaths follows up with a survey to track long term effectiveness of the class.  Classes are designed for employees making $50,000 or less.

One time, 90-minute Budget/Credit Class

Designed to help individuals or families create a budget and understand the basics of credit. Britepaths trains volunteers in FDIC’s Money Smart curriculum to conduct the classes in a group setting. 

6-part or 4-part series of Credit Education Class

The six or four-week credit education course seeks to help participants better manage their money, improve their credit ratings and gain a better understanding of the process of buying a home. Britepaths trains volunteers that have experience in the areas of finance and mortgages to conduct the classes.

  • Your Credit and Why It Is Important
  • Managing Your Money and Banking Services
