Urban Financial Services Coalition - St. Louis Chapter (UFSC-STL) became a international chartered chapter of Urban Financial Services Coalition (UFSC) on June 10, 2010. UFSC-STL is a non-profit 501(c)6 association of minority professionals in the financial services industry and related fields. UFSC-STL was organized and became a registered State of Missouri entity in August, 2008. We provide educational, technical, and advisory assistance to the Saint Louis Metropolitan community; professional development for our members; and scholarships for local minority students pursuing degrees of disciplines within the financial services industry.
The Federal Reserve Bank of St Louis has partnered with the Urban Financial Services Coalition to broaden student’s knowledge and skills in the area of Financial Literacy.
Teachers can select an interactive presentation from the following list:
Earning an Income
Money must be earned before it can be managed. There are lots of jobs available in the economy, and lots of people looking for work. Your success in the job market is often a function of your skills and education – something economists call “human capital.” Learn why education makes a difference, and how you can prepare for your financial future.
Using Financial Services
Where do you keep your money? Where do you cash your checks? While it might not seem important, where you do your “money business” can have a big impact on your finances now, and in the future. Learn how the sources of financial services differ, and what advantages banks and credit unions might offer. And, learn about the advantages of establishing a “relationship” with a bank.
Running a little short on cash? Need to borrow some money? There are many options available for accessing credit, but some options are better than others, depending on the situation. Learn about the many alternative sources of credit including payday and title lending facilities, rent-to-own agreements, and pawnshops, as well as more traditional sources of credit such as banks and credit unions. Finally, learn about the importance of building a credit history and a strong credit score.
