360 Degrees of Financial Literacy Introduces Spanish-Language Resources

360FinancialLiteracyThe AICPA constantly searches for ways to enhance the 360 Degrees of Financial Literacy program and provide a wider audience with knowledge that will start them on the path to financial success. For this reason, the AICPA’s 360 Degrees of Financial Literacy program recently launched a new consumer Spanish-language resource center to address the need to educate the growing number of Spanish-language consumers in the United States.

The resource center offers help in several areas, such as fraud, paying for an education, how to raise a saver, tips for online shopping and credit card information. In the next few months, we plan to provide more content for the resource center that touches on popular personal finance issues and questions.

In addition to consumer resources, we also provide members with handouts and presentations that can be used to teach people more about financial literacy. CPAs across the U.S. have tapped into the information and turnkey resources at the Financial Literacy Resource Center to use in their volunteer efforts. Whether it’s organizing workplace brown bags on retirement planning, or speaking to a local high school about how to pay for college, the resource center has you covered.

In order to provide resources for both Spanish-speaking CPAs and their communities, we have introduced a Spanish-language Tweens & Teens Volunteer Toolkit within the Financial Literacy Resource Center, complete with handouts and a PowerPoint presentation template.

For more than 10 years, thousands of people have turned to the AICPA’s 360 Degrees of Financial Literacy program for additional financial guidance. The program, which is a national volunteer effort of the nation’s CPAs, helps Americans understand their personal finances and develop money management skills. It focuses on financial education as a lifelong endeavor – from children learning about the value of money to adults reaching a secure retirement. Within the CPA profession, people have the unique ability to help create successful futures – we thank you for all your help and hope these new tools make it even easier.
