About Dollar Works 2
Dollar Works 2 is a comprehensive personal financial education program developed by educators from the University of Minnesota Extension Center for Family Development. It teaches basic economic concepts to strengthen people’s skills in managing their personal finances and making sound decisions with money.
People understand and use money within the context of their culture and life experiences. While there is no “right” or “wrong” way to handle money, some ways are more likely to increase financial control and independence. Families need more than just information and practice. They need to learn how to make changes in managing their personal finances. Dollar Works 2 provides educators and service providers who assist families with knowledge, tools, and strategies for managing resources, attaining personal goals, and increasing financial stability.
