MoneySmart

Program Description

MoneySmart delivers financial education and literacy to Upper Valley residents of all ages and socioeconomic backgrounds, with a focus on at-risk community members.

MoneySmart focuses on 3 key areas:

  • College Access: MoneySmart teaches modules for high school students participating in Dartmouth-sponsored college awareness programs about financial aid and budgeting for college.
  • Community Financial Literacy: MoneySmart partners with the Upper Valley Haven and Southeast State Correctional Facility to offer workshops on personal credit card bank lending, small business topics, and money management and investing.
  • Campus Financial Literacy: MoneySmart educates Dartmouth students by holding documentary screenings and other events on campus. MoneySmart is also partnering with Dartmouth's FYSEP (First-Year Student Enrichment Program) to host seminars that will include topics on credit, banking, spending and saving, goal setting, etc.

Volunteers are always encouraged to bring their creativity and vision to the curriculum and adapt it based on the population being served.
