NOTE: Your Money Your Goals is a great resource, but it is not made to be a stand-alone financial education class. It has tools that would be great to incorporate in a class, but in general, it is not written for groups. We recommend that in a class setting, you use these tools within a broader plan that engages people in additional ways, especially finding ways to encourage group interaction, and tailored to the needs and interests of your community.
