"Financially Ungraduated" is a term that my guests today, the co-founders of Arbol, created to address a big issue in today's world... financial illiteracy for students.
The truth is, many high achieving students have the drive to finish college but unfortunately, due to a lack of financial education and resources, they're unable to finish in time. And that can cause a huge negative impact on their lives moving forward.
So in this episode, I've invited my guests to talk about what they're doing to tackle this issue and how we can support them in the fight against financial illiteracy for students.
This episode is part 2 out of a 2 part series we’re collaborating on.
