The National Center for Civil and Human Rights is pleased to announce its partnership with First American Financial Corporation, Operation Hope and Lionheart Consulting Group, the first annual Silver Rights Financial Literacy Academy. Taking place July 22-24, 2014, the Academy will provide 48 sophomore and junior year college students with tools to make informed financial decisions and proactively plan for their economic well-being, as well as to become ethical leaders in their communities. It is a three-day intensive program of interactive workshops, lectures, panels and group work, facilitated by leading experts and practitioners in the field.
The program will cover four core topics: Financial Literacy, Creating Sustainable Communities, Leadership and Civic Engagement. Students will be divided into cohorts in which they will work with an Atlanta-based nonprofit on an identified issue. Each day’s program will be from 8:00 am to 8:00 pm with additional evening project work with cohort members. The Academy will be in the brand new National Center for Civil and Human Rights, located at 100 Ivan Allen Jr. Boulevard, Atlanta, GA, 30313.
