Equipping Young Adults with Lifelong Money Skills

We believe strongly in investing in our community, and we know that the younger generations are our greatest asset. That’s why we’re thrilled to sponsor the industry’s leading personal finance curriculum, Foundations in Personal Finance. We’re providing it free of charge to the Muskegon County Juvenile Transition Center. 

We know many of our team members at First General Credit Union share a passion for education, and we’re excited to tell you about this wonderful opportunity. We joined forces with Dave Ramsey, one of America’s most well-known financial experts, in September 2020. This reflects First General Credit Union’s desire to be your financial partner for life and serve as a leader in our communities.

Jim King, Vice President of Ramsey Education Solutions, said, “We are thrilled to be working with First General Credit Union. They have demonstrated a strong commitment to financial education and empowering young adults with financial skills that will last a lifetime.”

Dave Ramsey’s Foundations in Personal Finance course is a comprehensive curriculum designed to provide students with sound financial principles that will guide them into adulthood. On video, Ramsey and his team educate and entertain students as they learn how to avoid debt, build wealth, and give like no one else.

 The course meets personal finance standards in all 50 states as well as national standards suggested by the Jump$tart Coalition for Personal Financial Literacy. Look for exciting updates about the impact of this sponsorship. 

We’ll share more about Muskegon County Juvenile Transition Center that we’re sponsoring and the number of students receiving the money skills that will help them thrive in today’s economy.
