Financial well-being is the ultimate goal of financial empowerment

  • Financial well-being is financial security plus financial freedom of choice, in the present and future.

  • Financially empowered acts are steps towards financial well-being.

  • Our financially empowered acts come with clear instructions, so you can get started right away.
Get Started!
Choose an act below and click “start.” After completing an Act, click “reflect” to let us know how it went. We review acts, then we issue badges for single acts and certificates for a sequence of badges. 
Don't feel like reflecting? Research shows that potent learning is rooted from reflecting back on one's experiences. The better grasp you have of an Act, the more effective you are to pass on the knowledge. Also, deeper learning is not the only reward for writing your reflections. ABC also utilizes your reflections to improve systems and show outcomes. By doing reflections, not only are you enhancing your learning, but you're also contributing to the improvement of the whole learning environment. How neat is that?
Financial First Responder Certificate Training
