In partnership with community agencies and educational institutions, Appalachian Regional Library System will provide financial capability programming for women across three generations.

For young adults in high school and college, programming will focus on financing educational costs, basic budgeting, saving for major purchases, and an introduction to investing.

For women in midlife and nearing or in retirement, programs will help participants prepare for their children’s education expenses, manage household budgets, recover from financial setbacks, and stick to a retirement saving and investing plan while caring for aging parents.

Additional sessions for seniors will help participants manage retirement income, avoid financial fraud, and understand estate planning.
