Leading the Way and Teaching the right way

I would love to see "classes" on how to save money when people dont have a lot of money to save. Opening accounts is great- if you know what they are for and how to use them. Retirement is a big deal that most young people dont think about, nor is it taught in school. I think it would be awesome if a few partners could get together and come up with a simplified banking system that helps pave the way for anyone to know how banking works and the right ways for them to save. I met with Mary J in Tukwila and she was amazing and helped me open a Roth IRA, but before I spoke with her I had no idea how to save for my retirement and the down payment for my first home at the same time.

Can you tell us a little more about what class topics you would find valuable relating to saving money? Check out our online and self-paced courses here and let us know what we're missing!
