More about Money Wise

Alternatives Federal Credit Union's money management course Money Wise provides people with the tools to confront financial issues in their lives. Topics covered include; income and debt, expense tracking, setting and saving toward goals, practical economics, record keeping, insurance, predatory lending, establishing and repairing credit, conscientious consuming, and investment options.

While other financial education courses are primarily geared towards providing information and worksheets, the Money Wise course walks students through the behavior change process. We believe that instead of overwhelming our students with templates to solve their financial troubles, we identify the individual as the instrument of change. Money Wise requires only one task — tracking expenses. Our goal is to see people realize that they have the ability to change and use that realization to confront their financial issues and begin managing their money.
