Community Education

The core of Consumer Action's educational mission is to improve financial literacy at the community level. Tailoring its community education approach, Consumer Action is able to promote informed participation in the marketplace by people of color, low income and rural consumers, recent immigrants and seniors.

On this page we present our unique community education model as well as case studies of our successful work in specific communities.
