ROSCOE, N.Y. - Dec. 14, 2016 - PRLog -- Float Your Boat Media has launched a new financial literacy course for youth and adults called Where Does My Money Go? The blended learning platform provides instruction in financial concepts, common terminology, useful guidance, and everyday tools. As with other Float Your Boat courses, our platform accommodates individuals and service organizations. Its goal is to empower people to make informed decisions about their financial lives and build the foundation for a lifetime of responsible financial behavior.
"Float Your Boat was founded with a mission to improve the employability and earning power of under-served youth and adults. Now we focus on the value that financial education brings to individuals, families, and their broader communities," says Jay Rabinowitz, Managing Director. "Young, old, employed, unemployed, English fluent, new English learners, citizens and immigrants all have compelling reasons for improving their financial knowledge and security. A basic understanding of current financial practices and institutions will give them the resources to make informed decisions."
Float Your Boat believes that increasing financial knowledge in low-income populations will allow many people to rise from America's social safety net to long-term self-sufficiency. We also observe that government, non-profit and faith-based social services organizations face an array of challenges in reaching and supporting clients. In turn, their clients have limited time, space, and resources. We have created a focused and accessible learning solution that addresses both individual and organizational needs.
Targeted curriculum for learners, assessment and compliance tools for organizations
Where Does My Money Go? stimulates student engagement via online/offline learning while making class management, assessment, and compliance easier. Lessons are tailored to meet the needs of a broad range of education and literacy levels. They can be used in different educational settings (self-guided, tutor, classroom) and cover the essential elements of financial literacy: Income and Earning Money, Saving Money, Banks and Banking, Understanding and Managing Debt, Investing in Your Future, Protecting Your Money. The sole focus is to provide relevant content and actionable tools.
Organizations will find flexible group management tools to create and enroll students, and support for remote class and student management. On-board assessment features include the ability to evaluate learning progress and content mastery. Float Your Boat uses a responsive design that allows the site to work on a broad range of devices including computers, tablets and smart phones. All lessons, worksheets, flash cards, and quizzes can be downloaded and printed at any time.
Where Does My Money Go? is offered on a subscription basis to individuals and to organizations including social services and workforce development agencies, adult education institutions, libraries, correctional facilities and other community-based organizations.
