¡Dinero Para todos! New Resources for Financial Education in Spanish
As of July 1, 2016, people of Hispanic origin made up 17.8% of the U.S. population, making them the nation's largest ethnic or racial minority. As financial educators, many of us are likely finding a growing demand for our programs among recent Latino immigrants. As they are learning to navigate American financial systems, it can be helpful to provide reliable and non-biased information in Spanish. In this workshop we'll review some of the top Spanish financial education resources from government and university sources, share fun activities in Spanish that can enhance the learning experience, and highlight best practices for reaching this target audience. All participants will receive electronic copies of many of the resources that will be covered.
