Financial Literacy for Everyone

We actively connect with any group that is looking to improve their financial literacy. Our presentation is relaxed and interactive. It can be tailored to educate people of all ages and backgrounds, including youth groups, seniors homes, families, parents, school boards and college open houses. Led by our Synergy Emerging Leaders, the presenters keep audiences of all sizes and ages interested and engaged.

If you’re not able to attend a session in person, but are still interested in learning more about how to improve your financial literacy, sign up for a free, interactive online session at our ‘It’s a Money Thing’ Academy.

Tell us what financial literacy means to you for a chance to win!
