About Us

What is Financial Literacy?  The President’s Advisory Council on Financial Literacy defines personal financial literacy as the ability to use knowledge and skills to manage financial resources effectively for a lifetime of financial well-being.

NOVA’s Financial Literacy Program provides educational resources to increase awareness of personal financial management topics such as budgeting, spending, saving, and borrowing.  Our goal is to educate and motivate everyone in the NOVA community to make prudent financial decisions that contribute to their financial well-being and overall success.

Students, faculty, and staff are particularly encouraged to use CashCourse; the free, noncommercial, financial education resource available to the entire NOVA community.  CashCourse was created by the National Endowment for Financial Education (NEFE) and it provides a wealth of information and interactive content on various financial topics that could benefit you and save you money!

If you are interested in incorporating financial literacy topics into your classroom or a workshop or if you have any other questions about our blog, please email Clint Young, the Financial Literacy, Default Prevention, & Work-Study Coordinator at jcyoung@nvcc.edu.


Check out the article that CashCourse did on our Financial Literacy Program at NOVA posted here.  It is featured on their Success Stories website that highlights financial education programs across the USA.
