Miami Dade College
Due to its success at the high school level, South Florida Educational Federal Credit Union (FCU) expanded "Got Green?" to include Miami Dade College (MDC)
during the 2008 fall semester. South Florida Educational FCU has since hosted more than 207 financial literacy workshops throughout MDC campuses, reaching more than 3,900 students through 125 presentations this school year alone.
Designed as a program to meet students' need for unbiased personal finance, "Got Green?"
is a free service available to all Miami Dade College students. "Got Green?"
was developed as a three part financial literacy workshop designed to teach the importance of responsible credit, budgeting and savings/ checking accounts; however, the program has grown to also include presentations on student loans compound interest and identity theft.
Workshops can be scheduled for individual classrooms, student groups or special events on campus by contacting Gisela Colon at firstname.lastname@example.org
