HOB FE AJC.docx

National Disability Institute (NDI) has released quick reference and disability supplemental guides that complement the Hands on Banking® instructor guides for adults, young adults and entrepreneurs.

Hands on Banking is a free, fun, non-commercial financial education program available in both English and Spanish that teaches people, in all stages of life, about the basics of responsible money management, including how to create a budget, save and invest, borrow responsibly, buy a home and establish a small business. 

The new guides are designed to provide financial educators, American Job Centers, Vocational Rehabilitation and community-based organizations access to resources and tools specifically for persons with disabilities.

In 2016, NDI and Wells Fargo created the Integrating Financial Education Programs into the American Job Centers and Community-Based Organizations Toolkit, which features six steps towards integrating financial education into existing workforce development and community-based programs. The Toolkit serves as a guide to integrating financial education within American Job Centers, Vocational Rehabilitation and community-based organizations that provide services to people with disabilities and their family members.
