successfully manage it.

organization that has played an important role in financial
literacy education for the past 25 years," said Graham Moyer,
vice president of Essential Knowledge. "We envision many
opportunities for these two organizations to work together with
a common goal of helping people improve their financial lives."

financial literacy programs for working adults, teenagers and
young adults, as well as military personnel and their families.
These programs include online college credit classes,
certification programs, books, tools and group workshops.

Financial Management, a new online course created specifically
for members of the military community by Essential Knowledge and
