Financially Educating the Next Generation

April 27, 2023

South Texas College’s Financial Wellness Center, with community partner TRB, hosted a series of workshops to promote “Money Talks” to the next generation of professionals. From April 24th-26th, the three-day roadshow of financial workshops were hosted at STC campuses across the Rio Grande Valley.

These workshops were an excellent opportunity for students to learn from experts and learn how to manage their money more effectively. All STC students are encouraged to attend and take advantage of this valuable opportunity next year.

“College students are our next generation of community leaders; therefore, it is crucial for them to have the tools needed to make smart financial decisions,” says Director of Business Development Jamie Brown-Rosas. “By partnering with South Texas College, we’re helping to ensure that the next generation of professionals has the knowledge and skills they need to thrive.”

The partnership between TRB and STC for Financial Literacy Awareness Month allowed a greater reach throughout the community to promote financial education and empower individuals to achieve their financial goals.

“Our goal is to empower South Texas College graduates with the knowledge and skills they need to impact their communities positively,” says Senior Branch Sales Officer Diana Delaunay. “By providing them with the tools and resources they need to succeed, we can help them achieve their goals and make a real difference in the world.”

If you missed this year’s “Money Talks” workshops, don’t worry, financial literacy training is still available. South Texas College’s Financial Wellness Center offers resources for students looking to improve their financial literacy all year. The center provides a range of personalized courses, interactive tools, and helpful resources to help students learn about budgeting, credit management, saving, investing, and more.
