This site has been created as a reference for anyone who would like to know more about the Western Massachusetts Credit for Life organization.  Most importantly, it has been designed to share information with the supporters, teachers, volunteers and the students we are dedicated to serving.

Initially, Credit for Life provided financial literacy for the high school students in Springfield and Holyoke.  Most recently, students from Easthampton, Chicopee, West Springfield and other local communities have joined in the fun!  In fact, we’ve grown so much, we now host 4 events — 1 at Springfield Technical Community College; 1 at Holyoke Community College; 1 at Elms College and our newest Fair at Westfield State University starting in 2015!

The program is amazing!  It presents the attendees with real-life decisions to be made based on their arbitrarily assigned credit score and career choice.  Students quickly learn through these role-playing examples how to budget their money so they can pay their bills on time and establish and maintain good credit — the foundation of a solid and financially stable future.

Please reference the links on this site for more details on our upcoming fairs, as well as attendee, volunteer and contributor information.
