The BFLP is a not-for-profit program designed to help young adults acquire the necessary knowledge and skills for long-term financial prosperity and independence. The program draws from case studies developed by Babson College finance professors to teach critical financial skills in a community setting. While exploring real-world financial situations, participants build lifelong strategies for budgeting, building credit, investing, and more. An online financial knowledge platform supports the program. Participants do not need any financial expertise, and only basic math skills are required.
