Since it’s inception, CAF has maintained a prominent level of community involvement. CAF continues to assess the educational needs of consumers and communities across the nation in an effort to improve financial literacy. With specific focus on budgeting, maintaining credit reports, best practice in credit usage, and personal money management, CAF delivers superior educational presentations and tools to a wide variety of community groups, institutions and organizations.
CAF delivers superior
Averaging two presentations monthly to high school students, CAF is very aware of the prevalent lack of information this age group actually has as they begin to take steps into the ‘adult world’ of credit. CAF works regularly with world famous Girls & Boystown High School, preparing their youth to understand credit and debt, and how to make educated decisions in their financial dealings as they make their way in the world.
CAF is also involved in raising awareness of older students through programs offered at area technical colleges, as well as the University of Nebraska. These students, of all ages, have many questions regarding credit card usage, credit reports, and of course, student loans.
In addition, CAF assists employers to educate their employees through lunch ‘n learn presentations, and EAP’s. CAF has helped both small and large businesses as they develop ‘credit smart’ staff, and provide options for relieving debt stress for those with credit difficulties.
CAF connects and contributes to many other community organizations as well. CAF works closely with the Federal Prison Release Program through the Federal Probation Office by training their clients on budgeting, and other necessary skills to help them get back into the community as successful and functioning citizens. Other non-profit groups, including the Red Cross, and local hospitals have utilized CAF as a source of information for their client programs and employees.
The Board of Directors of Credit Advisors Foundation leads the way for the entire organization in an effort to promote community education and involvement. Encourage your employer or community group to contact CAF today for more information about a custom presentation for your organization.
