REAL Solutions: Building Member & Consumer Financial Capability
Lois Kitsch, Foundation National Program Director, speaks about Reality Fairs at a Financial Literacy and Education Commission field hearing on Youth and Post-secondary Financial Education, organized by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. The Commission was established under the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act of 2003 and is charged with creating a national strategy on financial education.
REAL Solutions™ works with state credit union trade associations
(“leagues”) to provide credit unions the tools to respond to the needs
of this demographic and, ultimately, make a difference in the financial
lives of members, families and communities.
Today, REAL Solutions continues to be a catalyst for change. Our continued focus is to achieve broader and deeper scale in our programs through train-the-trainer efforts and thereby greatly increase the number of people who have access to our experiential learning programs and member products. In addition, we are deeply engaged with the broader financial education and innovation communities to bring new strategies for helping working families achieve financial freedom.
