Engaging Limited-Resource Participants in Financial Education through Activity-Based Lessons
Financial education for limited-resource audiences can be challenging. This workshop will highlight financial lesson kits designed to assist volunteers (and staff) in assessing the needs of a small group and engaging participants in financial education through activity-based lessons.
Questions or Implications for Researchers: Research would be welcomed on the effectiveness of the lessons, as well as the ability of the pre-assessment to accurately predict the needs of the small group participants for financial education. Additional pilot-testing of the lessons would also be helpful, along with peer-review to prepare the lessons for replication by other educators.
