The Babson Financial Literacy Project (BFLP) is a not-for-profit initiative designed to help young adults acquire the necessary financial knowledge and skills for long-term independence and prosperity. An important part of our mission is to fill the financial literacy gap for underserved populations by providing them with access to personal finance education.
The program teaches and supports young adults through workshops delivered at colleges, community colleges, high schools, and social services organizations when they are facing important financial decisions. They are getting their first adult jobs, are newly eligible for credit, deciding what to spend, and setting saving and investing goals.
Workshops cover a wide variety of financial topics and are available in diverse delivery formats. The BFLP provides coaches to lead workshops or trains staff at our delivery partners to lead them on their own. Workshops can be delivered in person or online, and both are interactive in nature. Online learning modules and tools support the program.
