Know that every video will utilize humor, storytelling and engaging visuals in order to make the lesson memorable and engaging. The goal of these videos is to provide an entertaining and relatable voice through which you can successfully share the financial knowledge your intended audience needs.

Is this content better suited for students or professionals?
All students and professionals would benefit from this! Every person is impacted by how they approach taking out and repaying loans, saving money, earning more money, building and using credit safely, and investing in their future.
How could this help us achieve our goals as an institution?
Humor is a huge connector when it comes to this subject, and the goal of each video is to be entertaining, genuine, and easy-to-apply. This content is a way to support anyone looking to get a better grasp on their finances, and it shows the parents of young people that you are supporting them by offering the professional and personal finance skills to live fulfilling lives.
