Program description: “The American media has dubbed this program a “scared straight” credit program for students." CARE was designed by the Bankruptcy Community to teach the importance of financial education. CARE presentations make for great standalone financial literacy lessons; they are also great supplements to other financial literacy programs and can be made during individual classroom periods or to larger student groups, including assembly programs. CARE's primary target is HS "seniors and college freshmen who are most at risk because, as hungry consumers, they are aggressively marketed by the credit card industry at a time when they carry a very low Financial I.Q.” - (Source: http://careprogram.squarespace.com/program-overview/) PROGRAM COMPONENTS & TOPICS: A live presentation A 25-minute PBS39 Video Field Trip: “Taking Care of Your Credit” Discussions of the 6 video modules: (1)What is Credit?, (2)Finding Credit, (3)Pros and Cons of Credit Cards, (4)Spend It or Save It: You Choose, (5)Consequences of Bad Credit, (6)Using Credit Wisely Handouts and tools Exercises and activities that allow students to apply what they learned and that promote reflection Pre-Test and Post-Test Supplemental readings, resources and activities
