Bringing Financial Literacy to the Community

Students from the SCALE program graduate from SCC Financial Literacy classSomerville for Access to Financial Education (SAFE)

SCC’s SAFE program seeks to provide Somerville residents – recent immigrants and U.S.-born individuals alike – with the necessary knowledge to navigate their financial lives effectively and successfully. The topics covered are vital to the economic well-being of all people but of most importance to low-income individuals and families. They are more vulnerable to economic instability.

Somerville Center for Adult Learning Experiences (SCALE)

SCALE is an active SAFE partner. Many SCALE students have employment and family responsibilities that prevent them from being able to take time out of their busy schedules to attend financial education classes. To deal with this difficulty, financial literacy workshops have been incorporated into SCALE's regular class schedule, making it possible for students with already overextended schedules to gain access to important knowledge.
