- “The financial education program helped me prioritize my needs and wants so I can achieve my goal of earning a college degree with minimal student loan debt. I now have confidence that I am in charge of my financial destiny, not my parents or corporations, and that achieving financial freedom at a young age is possible.”AriannaBGCCC Alumnus
