Using money management and financial literacy as weapons to combat poverty will be the focus of free public programs in April at Briar Cliff University’s Stark Student Center.
On Monday, April 15, money management expert Adam Carroll will present “Winning the Money Game” at 7 p.m.
Carroll, a self-proclaimed financial literacy junkie, contends that individuals who are able to make, manage, save and invest their money are happier and more content. In 2004, he founded National Financial Educators with the goal to educate, entertain and inspire young people to live their lives in complete control of their money.
On Tuesday, April 16, at 9 a.m., Marybeth Foster, executive director, Iowa Credit Union Foundation, will discuss Individual Development Account, a new asset development program for working adults who are within 200 percent of the poverty line. Foster’s co-presenter will be John Parks, CEO, Sioux Valley Community Credit Union.
On Tuesday, April 23, at 1 p.m., Briar Cliff student Abby Buckhouse will present “Influencing Community Thinking About Poverty Policy and Programs,”based upon her research on poverty and mobility projects in Siouxland.
All events are sponsored by the Departments of Social Work and Business at Briar Cliff.
