Financial Education

Want to start telling your money where to go, rather than always wondering where it went?

Everyone can benefit from tips on how to better manage their earnings but too many of us don’t get the information we need (or get misinformation) from family members or at school.

Step Up works with local partners to expand opportunities for residents to become informed consumers and build knowledge and skills related to:

  • Credit
  • Spending
  • Budgeting
  • Saving
  • Borrowing
  • Identity Protection

Step Up coordinates the Savannah Financial Education Network, a group of professionals that meet quarterly to share ideas, services and effective practices in financial education. Members offer financial counseling or coaching, and classes on topics such as how to improve credit, manage money, establish a savings schedule, and first time homebuyer workshops.

Check out the Financial Education Directory for a list of members/services or click on the calendar to find classes that fit your schedule.

Step Up also partners with Consumer Credit Counseling Service of the Savannah Area to provide non-biased financial education classes at employer sites. If you are interested in bringing a class to your place of employment contact Robyn Wainner, director of asset building.
