Program

Approach

Our Approach

Our program uses engaging case studies developed by seasoned Babson finance professors to teach important financial lessons to young adults. While exploring real-world financial situations in a group setting, participants hone their problem-solving skills and build lifelong strategies for budgeting, building credit, saving for retirement, and more. Online learning modules and tools support the program.

We rely on respected members of partner organizations to serve as advocates and coaches. The BFLP provides training and support to ensure coaches are comfortable in their roles. In some settings, the BFLP may supply coaches.

No financial expertise is required for coaches or participants. Only basic math skills are needed.

What Makes Our Program Unique

Comprehensive

The program covers a broad range of financial topics, including budgeting, credit cards, saving for retirement and more.

Expert & Unbiased

Seasoned Babson finance professors developed the program, which is not affiliated with any financial institution.

Engaging Format & Content

Case studies and group discussion help young adults develop their financial skills. Online modules complement our workshops.

Flexible Teaching Model

Our train-the-trainer model and customizable approach provide our partners with flexibility in workshop design and delivery.

Who We Serve

We work with social services organizations, educational providers, and companies interested in boosting the financial knowledge and capabilities of their program members and employees. Because our cases are discussion based and require no prior financial knowledge and only basic math skills, they are accessible to diverse learners.

“The BFLP case study on credit cards and credit scores was the best workshop I’ve been to all year!”

“I don’t have a credit card because I was scared. Now that I know how to manage it, I’m not any longer and plan to get one.”
