Financial Literacy for the Young Adult Cancer Community

Expect Miracles Foundation (EMF) is excited to announce a new partnership with the Babson Financial Literacy Project (BFLP) to offer Financial Literacy for the Young Adult Cancer Community. BFLP is a not-for-profit initiative developed at Babson College, one of the top ranked business schools in the country, to help young adults acquire the necessary financial knowledge and skills for long-term independence and prosperity. Through this partnership, EMF is proud to provide an additional source of financial support to the young adult community to help them regain their financial footing following a cancer diagnosis.

The curriculum has been developed by professors at Babson and uses an interactive delivery model and case studies to present important and relevant financial lessons to help this community manage their future finances. This 5-week series will be provided free of cost to the young adult cancer community (patients, survivors, caregivers, etc.) and will be presented in an online community setting of peers who have faced similar challenges related to their cancer experiences.

 

Please register no later than October 2. Each session will begin at 7pm EST and last 1-1.5 hours.
