Financial Literacy Center

The San Diego Financial Literacy Center (SDFLC) enhances the financial IQ of San Diego County residents with a focus on youth (K-12 & College), military (active, transitioning and veteran), and low-to-moderate income families.

 

The financial literacy of constituents is enhanced through complimentary and custom built educational seminars and workshops such as Smart With Your Money, Boost for Our Heroes, and Wave of the Future. Additional education is offered via confidential one-to-one financial consultations and budget analysis.
