To stimulate awareness of personal finance issues, provide knowledge and encourage the use of practical financial skills for students through classroom lessons and case study competition.
The Take Charge Cats (named after the University of Arizona Wildcats) is a program comprised of 15 University of Arizona students who provide personal financial education to college students and students in grades K-12 in the greater Tucson community. The TCC educators are extensively trained by the Take Charge America Institute faculty and staff to provide community outreach through presentation of money management workshops that focus on the core topics of spending plans, saving, credit cards, credit reports, paychecks, and the value of education. In addition, the TCC design and implement creative programs that include personal finance competitions in area high schools and middle schools, Arizona Financial Face-Off.
The mission of the Take Charge Cats is to train and support a group of student “financial education” ambassadors who conduct workshops and seminars on campus and in the greater Tucson community.
