Education

Welcome to the AFDICA Education page! 

One of foundational pillars of the AFDICA is to further and facilitate financial literacy. The value of elevating financial literacy to virtually all demographic populations can have lasting and lifetime benefits. Your contributions can help improve your community, fulfill the AFDICA mission, and hopefully provide you with a meaningful and rewarding experience. While the FDIC “Money Smart” program provides the centerpiece of curriculum and material utilized, often organizations we engage with have unique needs so that virtually any material that elevates financial knowledge is useful and benefits your audience. This page will help you explore both the FDIC programs, as well as various financial literacy efforts the AFDICA has undertaken
