Greetings from the Indianapolis Chapter of the Credit Abuse Resistance Education (CARE) program. We are bankruptcy industry professionals who visit high schools and provide interactive presentations on a range of financial literacy topics, such as credit and credit reports/scores, student loans, identity theft, and general personal financial management skills.
We provide real life examples to help students avoid pitfalls that can jeopardize their ability to meet financial goals. The Indianapolis team of volunteers welcomes the chance to share how we can be of service to
your students, particularly those enrolled in any of the following classes: Adult Roles and Responsibilities, Business, Economics, Life Skills and/or Personal Financial Responsibility.
What is CARE?
CARE is a national, nonprofit, locally-powered financial literacy program that draws upon the experience of bankruptcy judges, lawyers and law school students to teach young adults the basics of personal finance. We provide interactive presentations, share useful tips, and highlight potential pitfalls related to:
• the use of credit cards and the importance of credit scores;
• the dangers of, and strategies to prevent, identity theft; and
• issues regarding student loans and bankruptcy.
We provide a unique perspective on how a young person’s financial decisions can impact their future due to our first-hand experience as industry practitioners. Indianapolis CARE volunteers make presentations because they care about the financial health of young adults.
