Financial Literacy

Financial illiteracy is a huge problem in the United States. Americans spend $1.22 for every $1.00 earned.

In response, the AICPA, with the support of the state CPA societies, developed the award-winning 360 Degrees of Financial Literacy program.

What is 360 Degrees of Financial Literacy?

360 Degrees of Financial Literacy is a multi-faceted effort, spearheaded by the AICPA, with the support of state CPA societies. The program encourages CPAs to take a broad leadership role in volunteering to educate the American public, from school children to retirees, on financial topics that apply specifically to their particular stage of life. Throughout the country thousands of CPAs are volunteering in their own communities to improve the nation’s financial literacy.

The Nevada Society of CPAs has partnered with Junior Achievement across the state to deliver a Financial Literacy program to students grade K-12. For more information, email Kary Arnold, karnold@nevadacpa.org.
