WalletHub conducted research in each state to gauge financial literacy. Bad News: New Mexico came in 46th place. Good News: U.S. Eagle is working to combat this by providing financial literacy, for free. In 2017, U.S. Eagle provided financial literacy to more than 1,100 students in New Mexico. U.S. Eagle is an advocate for financial education and provides complimentary financial literacy classes throughout New Mexico.
Classes include topics, such as:
- Debt Management
- Understanding Your Credit Score
- Credit Union Difference
Our most popular financial literacy class is Mad City Money. Mad City Money is a real life simulation that gives students a sense of adulthood with income and bills to pay. Participants are assigned an identity, including occupation, salary, debt, marital status, children, and more. They have to decide where they will live and how they will live, all while staying within their budget.
