Description

Overview:
The focus of this study is to research the need to provide financial education to adults in a community through a community education program. Financial literacy allows individuals to make informed and effective financial decisions. Research has proven that as adults age, their financial needs change and many are left unprepared without support or resources. These are changes such as additional healthcare expenses, retirement planning, and living off a fixed income. It is also noted that young adults are transitioning into adulthood at a slower pace and often adding unplanned extra expenses to their parents. Participants are asked to conduct an anonymous survey. The survey will collect information such as gender and age group. Other data collected will include the interest of taking a personal finance course through the community education program, topics of interests as well as ranking the topics from very interested to not interested, how often the course should run, what time of the year it should run, and finally on what platform it should be delivered such as in-person, online, or in-person and online. Data collected from the survey will determine if there is a want for a personal finance course in the community.
