Indianapolis has been home to a chapter of the Credit Abuse Resistance Education (“CARE”) program since 2019. CARE is a national volunteer organization made up of bankruptcy and financial industry professionals that provides free financial literacy presentations (while aimed at high school juniors and seniors, the presentations are appropriate for ages 14 through adult) on the responsible use of credit, student loans, and general money management principals. For school audiences, the content of the presentations and related materials have been correlated to the Jump$tart Coalition's National Standards in K-12 Personal Finance Education.
For more information about CARE, contact Chris Muniz, local coordinator of the Indianapolis chapter, at Chris_Muniz@insb.uscourts.gov or (317) 229-3839.
