Hand Over Hand’s Financial Literacy Program is hosted on Google Classroom and is comprised of five learning pillars: Basic Banking, Budgeting, Saving, Debt and Credit. Each pillar covers a variety of topics over three separate workshop sessions. At the start of the first session, participants will be asked to complete a short survey to determine skill level and set goals for the remainder of the program.
