"What do you want to learn as far as financial management, money management?

- Shannon Kelley, Skills Coordinator for Goodwill Industries of Greater Detroit

"I want to learn how to use a bank account online, I want to know how to pay my bills online."

- Trainees at Goodwill Industries of Greater Detroit

In This Episode

Shannon Kelley, Skills Coordinator for Goodwill Industries of Greater Detroit, has created a safe environment where trainees feel comfortable learning how to manage their money. Financial literacy empowers individuals with skills for independence. The effects of one financial mistake can be devastating for individuals and their families.
