Financial Literacy & Aging Out Programs


Arizonans for Children in partnership with Wells Fargo offers free classes in Financial Literacy and Aging Out.  These interactive classes teach youths not only to budget money but how to apply for a job, write a compelling resume, excel at an interview and apply for college funding.

Through innovative teaching methods, the instructor breaks financial literacy into easy to understand, sensible tools to help youths manage their own finances.

This is a ‘must do’ course, helping foster youths to age out of foster care with the greatest possibility of success.  Classes are taught throughout Maricopa County for youths ages 11 to 18.
