College is an opportunity to expand your mind, enhance your social growth and prepare for your career goals. College also provides an excellent opportunity for you to further develop necessary life skills, such as time management, interpersonal skills, and money management skills or "financial fitness."
It is vital to understand your own personal financial standing and be knowledgeable of money management skills in order to make smart decisions that will create a strong lifelong personal financial foundation. We at Jefferson want to provide you the opportunities to become educated consumers and proactive participants in your fiscal futures. We feel that these websites can assist you in your journey to becoming financially fit!
