Introduction: Where Does My Money Go?

Where Does My Money Go? is a financial literacy course that provides instruction in essential financial concepts, commonly used terminology, guidance, resources, and everyday tools. Our goal is to empower people to make informed decisions about their financial lives, seek appropriate assistance when necessary, and build the foundation for a lifetime of responsible financial behavior. This blog post offers an introduction to all six lessons.

Where Does My Money Go?

Where exactly does my money go? How can I save money when I’m living paycheck to paycheck (to spend all that you earn each time you get paid, without saving anything)?

How do I improve my credit? What should I do if I have a poor banking history? Are payday loans too risky? How do I protect the money I am making? What can I do to prepare for my future?

Many of us have asked ourselves (and others) these questions. It’s easy to ask the questions; it’s harder to find good answers and perhaps even harder to make the necessary changes.

Blended Learning and Social Services

Blended learning offers new opportunities for social services organizations to extend their reach and engage clients, and empower staff and administration. WIOA asks that we develop new and holistic ways of delivering career pathway services. Blended learning excels in the social services environment. It can assist organizations in addressing a compelling array of client needs and preferences, and the evolving set of programming requirements.

Blended learning techniques vary, and usually leverage existing teaching practices. In combining traditional learning techniques and digital experiences, organizations can attain new levels of efficiency and effectiveness. Here are a few thoughts about program design and deployment of blended learning in the social services context.
