The Financial Services Roundtable is celebrating Financial Literacy Month guided by the work and financial-literacy curricula of member companies and three areas of concentration: financial education for older Americans, service members and the unbanked and underbanked. This year's 2012 Financial Literacy Calendar features the work of 18 Roundtable member companies and their events held in honor of Financial Literacy Month. Events include:
- Social media initiatives for saving money and reducing expenses
- Classroom teaching
- Community centers outreach
- Online financial-literacy curricula, among many, many more.
"Financial literacy is no longer just a trend, it's an integral steppingstone to a financially secure future," said Steve Bartlett, president and CEO for the Roundtable. "Our members take financial literacy seriously, and we're proud to showcase their many efforts."
