Financial Literacy Month is a celebration and a challenge. It’s an excellent time to review and improve your financial knowledge. It’s also a chance to reflect on the state of our personal finances and take steps to improve them one at a time.

Whether you’re just starting out or have been working for a while, it’s never too late to learn about saving and improving your financial situation. A goal of National Financial Literacy Month is to encourage people to determine their financial weaknesses, develop a budget, increase financial knowledge and learn about savings to improve their finances.

The Virginia Cooperative Extension – Prince William (VCE) offers several classes to help people with financial literacy, including Building a Spending Plan, Loans and Lending, Understanding Your Credit, Avoiding Frauds and Scams, and Rental Basics, among others. Visit Money for more information on how to improve financial literacy.
