Credit Abuse Resistance Education (CARE) Program

The Credit Abuse Resistance Education (CARE) Program is a nationwide program which provides high school and college educators easy access to volunteer professionals from the bankruptcy community who go into the schools to teach students important financial literacy lessons, tactics and techniques to help them understand how to use credit wisely, avoid credit card debt and understand the consequences of leading a debt-filled rather than a debt-free life. To learn more about the Program, go to http://care4yourfuture.org/, which includes a Federal Judicial Center Documentary.

 

Legal Up

Legal Up! is an innovative approach of teaching personal and civic responsibility to youth and training them in essential life skills. The program, which was developed by the Miami-Dade Family Learning Partnership and a team of legal professionals, consists of four interactive workshops, which specifically address the challenges delinquent youth face transitioning to adulthood, Financial Literacy, You and the Law, Employment, and Housing. Now in its sixth year, the program has recruited over 200 volunteers in the legal arena and have worked with various constituencies-professional groups, governmental agencies, and the business community in our efforts to offer students who are adjudicated, incarcerated or at-risk for school failure, the opportunity to have a positive and constructive experience that builds respect for and an understanding of the legal system. For more information, please contact the Hon. Laurel Myerson Isicoff at laurel_m_isicoff@flsb.uscourts.gov.
