Next Gen Personal Finance


Mar 31, 2016

Thanks to Reece Cannady and D.J. Bierwirth for recently joining me on the NGPF podcast. Reece and D.J. have leadership roles running the Financial Literacy Community Project (FLCP) at the University of Pennsylvania. Their organization serves several high schools and community programs in west Philadelphia by supplying a team of near-peer volunteer teachers teaching an innovative curriculum. Their goal: prepare these students to make sound financial decisions in their futures. Reece and D.J. provided their perspectives on questions which included: . What lessons have the largest impact on their students? . How do they train their college volunteers to teach the middle and high school students they serve? . What have been the most surprising questions that they have heard from their students? . What advice would they offer other colleges interested in running a similar program?
