Good credit saves you money and gives you more opportunities. Bad credit costs money and reduces opportunities. The financial and emotional aspects of credit are enormous.

Think about the high school and college classes where you learned about credit. Was it taught?

Unfortunately it is a topic that has slipped through the cracks of standard education. Many people learn about credit the hard way when something goes wrong. The Credit Literacy Project has set out to fix this issue.

Credit Literacy Project Goals:

  • Create smarter consumers in regards to personal credit through education, examples and case studies.
  • Bring together experts from the credit, legal, lending, non-profit housing counseling and real estate industries to deliver information people can use to improve their lives.
  • Raise awareness that credit should be taught in high school, vocational school and college.
  • Educate would-be entrepreneurs about building personal credit to launch business credit
  • Help people easily navigate the mortgage process
