The need for effective and easily-accessible financial education in our community has never been greater. Americans are facing record-high levels of debt and record low-levels of economic security. Texas A&M AgriLife Extension works in partnership with the Financial Literacy Coalition of Central Texas (FLCCT) to be a leading, trusted, unbiased and credible source of personal financial education. The FLCCT uses nationally recognized curriculum to assist instructors in providing financial literacy education to clientele. This Money Smart curriculum helps adults enhance their money skills and encourages building positive financial relationships. The curriculum used to provide financial education to youth is called Money Management.
