Local company provides free financial education

Boca Raton, FL – October 29, 2004 – Debt Management Credit Counseling Corp., a Boca Raton debt consolidation organization travels to high schools and community centers throughout South Florida to teach people financial skills for everyday life. The not-for-profit organization teaches free seminars on budgeting, wise credit card use, checking accounts and identity theft. This year alone, DMCC educators have taught over 3,500 students in Broward, Palm Beach, and Martin counties.

“We want to help people prevent debt by giving them the financial knowledge necessary to make smart decision,” said Jessica Stokes, DMCC’s education and research coordinator.

The free seminars have gained great popularity, and DMCC educators have been asked repeatedly to speak at student events, including the Future Business Leaders of America Conference. DMCC also takes part of community outreach programs, providing valuable financial education for two locations of the Broward Outreach Center, a comprehensive homeless assistance center for South Florida.
