spilled coins from the jar

What is it?

This is an accredited online eight-week course in which students learn principles of personal financial management from a practical perspective. This course will also help them to understand God’s purposes for money and finances and how to apply biblical principles in managing your money. This course involves about 15-17 hours a week of student reading, live interactions and working on homework. Classwork must be done weekly and can be done any time of the week except for Zoom meetings (dates listed in the course).

Why use it?

This course can help clients develop a working budget and monitor their spending. It can also help them live frugally, get out of debt, and even start investing. This course can be helpful to clients and interns that may have had challenges with financial management.

Who uses it?

CCity Vision University has had students from over 100 rescue missions (read student stories).

How do I get started and what does it cost?

We have found that the vast majority of clients in rescue mission programs or recent graduates qualify for Pell grants, which will cover the full cost of the course and may typically provide the students with $100-200 in additional income. Our regular tuition is $750/course, but this is discounted to $637.50/course for all rescue missions (or similar ministries). We discount to $500/course to organizations that send two or more paying students in a given year.
