Event Description

This FREE 4-day Financial Literacy and Education Series will begin Wednesday, February 24 – Saturday. February 27, 2016 at various locations throughout South Los Angeles.


South LA Saves in collaboration with non-profit, Committed To Uplifting Single Parents (C.U.S.P.) has pulled together a group of prominent financial industry contributors to discuss finances and provide tips and tools to help you “Take The Pledge” to get on a healthy financial footing. This is a FREE event, but registration is required.

The event series kicks off Wednesday, February 24th featuring Keynote Speaker Omar McGee, F...ounder of Executive Prep Academy of Finance. Executive Preparatory Academy of Finance is a Los Angeles based public charter high school with a focus on closing the financial literacy gap within the minority community. Their mission is to provide a high-quality and extensive college-preparatory educational experience to youth that results in our students succeeding in college, and ultimately in their professional careers.

On Thursday, February 25th, a panel of presenters will discuss Personal Budgeting and Financial Empowerment. This session, moderated by Norberta Noguera and hosted by Capital One, will give you the tips, tools and resources to develop and maintain your personal budget and help you reach your financial goals.

Friday, February 26th hosts Starlett Quarles, and Atara King will present “Money, Mortgages and Mojitos Networking Mixer”. This fun and informative affair will examine how we view wealth and the various ways to secure a mortgage in today’s financial climate… while the Mojitos flow!

Saturday, February 27th will wrap with the “3rd Annual South LA Saves Conference and Resource Fair.” Luncheon Speakers include Bert Wright & Shay Olivarria, Kinecta Credit Union and other financial institutions have partnered with South LA Saves and will be offering valuable resources to the community.

“This is our 3rd year bringing this powerful program to the community. I have personally seen the effect these programs are having on individuals and families, and love that we have the opportunity to expand it this year” says Rashunda Rene, Director at South LA Saves
