About the Babson Financial Literacy Project

The BFLP is a not-for-profit initiative designed to help young adults acquire the necessary financial knowledge and skills for long-term independence and prosperity. Being financially savvy in today’s complicated world is challenging. Most young adults do not receive financial education and are left to their own devices to make financial decisions. Many overspend, take on too much debt, and don’t think about planning for the future. The BFLP prepares young adults to manage their financial futures through engaging, interactive workshops that teach highly relevant financial lessons in a community setting.



Note that this workshop is aimed at people ages 18 – 25, but if you are in need or are curious about Financial tips and tricks, please do not hesitate to register and participate.
