Happy National Financial Literacy Month! As you all know by now, April is my favorite month of the year. At D.R.E.A.M., we consider NFLM to be a month long holiday. It’s a chance for us to spread the importance of financial education and share this knowledge within communities from coast to coast.
Celebrate With Us
D.R.E.A.M. will be hosting various events throughout the month in recognition of NFLM. We are extending an open invitation to our entire D.R.E.A.M. network to all of our events. Bring a friend, classmate, or coworker. Please find a list of our scheduled events below. Continue to check our calendar for new events that will be added in the coming days.
