Each One Teach One Financial Literacy Program



Each One, Teach One Financial Literacy Program

Building good financial skills can empower people in our communities to make the right financial
decisions for themselves and their families. That’s why Reddy Kilowatt has joined other
credit unions across the country to offer the Each One, Teach One Financial Literacy Program – a
plain language approach to building basic financial knowledge.


How it works


Through the Each One, Teach One Program and with the help of community partners, credit
union staff volunteer their time to deliver a series of free workshops – virtually or in-person –
that cover basic financial topics ranging from an Introduction to Basic Budgeting, Building a
Healthy Credit History to Home Readiness and more. Workshops are offered at different times
throughout the year with the sole goal of helping participants build financial knowledge in an
approachable, easy-to-understand way.


Online Modules

In addition to guided sessions, Each One Teach One also offers free, online financial literacy
modules that you can explore when and where you want. These self-directed courses provide a
high-level introduction to some of the most popular topics covered in Each One, Teach One
workshops. The online courses are also great for learning on a busy schedule, with each module
taking around 30 minutes to fully complete. While these online courses won’t cover everything
included in a full Each One, Teach One session, they can help you get started in building your
financial knowledge.
