Review for Just in Time for Foster Youth, San Diego, CA, USA
As a teenager, I did not have the best role models in my life, let alone older adults that I trusted confiding in. Due to this disconnect, I missed out on many learning opportunities such as budgeting and investing in my future. Thanks to Just In Time and their program, Financial Fitness, I was connected with a gentleman named Chris. He coached me through various financial topics: Budgeting, Saving, Investing, Credit, and Needs vs Wants, During the two year participation in the program, I continued implementing my new financial knowledge into my everyday practice. When I first enrolled into the Financial Fitness Program, my credit score was 652, and when I graduated from the program, I increased it to 739. I had a great experience in this program, and I am very thankful for all the guidance I received. But most importantly, I am thankful for the community connections I made which created long lasting relationships.
