I have completed two savings programs through WORC, one in 2016 and one in 2017 and the staff were always supportive through the process, even when saving seemed impossible. Paying for college is hard, but WORC and the savings program made paying for school easier and taught me the importance of financial management. Overall, a super helpful and rewarding experience and I can't wait to see what else they do to support people in the community!

I joined WORC's education savings program towards the end of 2017. Upon completion, I was able to use the money towards my last semester dues at Penn. I didn't even know programs like this existed, and the staff made the whole process a breeze. I was also able to learn more about overall financial literacy, which was helpful. There should really be more organizations providing this help to students. Thank you WORC!
