Atlantic Stewardship Bank Presents Money Management Lessons to Oasis Students
Atlantic Stewardship Bank has partnered with Oasis – A Haven for Women and Children in Paterson, NJ to provide a series of modules on money management skills. The program is being presented using materials available through the National Endowment for Financial Education. NEFE is a private, nonprofit foundation wholly dedicated to inspiring empowered financial decision making for individuals and families through every stage of life.
Doug Olsen, Regional Branch Administration Officer, and Judy Keyes, Training Officer, are presenting six 1 ½ hour sessions on a variety of financial topics. Module 1 covered topics such as setting “SMART” goals, paying attention to individual spending habits, the importance of creating a budget, and types of savings accounts. Module 2 focused on the cost of credit and the importance of distinguishing between “bad” and “good” credit. Students were able to review a sample credit report and learn what a bank looks for when deciding to approve a loan. Future topics will include discussions on earning power, the importance of investing in yourself, and taking care of your assets.
