Classes will be done in English and Spanish, and will include topics such as; writing a budget, saving for retirement, planning for college, getting out of debt, learning to read a credit report and how to buy a home. Sharon lent weight to the partnership as a member of the President’s Advisory Council on Financial Literacy.

Sharon will maintain an active relationship with the two organizations as they progress in their partnership.
