“Ford Credit FLIGHT has been very well received, so we are expanding it this year across the United States and Canada. There has been a lot of enthusiasm for the topic and students’ ability to apply the information has been impressive,” said Shelisa Fields, who leads financial literacy efforts at Ford Credit.
“Our workshop materials are available in Spanish and English,” Fields said. “We have worked with middle schools, high schools, community organizations and even a professional organization. Now, there is interest from colleges, churches and other community groups.”
In the past, the program mostly has been presented in person by Ford Credit employees. This year, Ford dealers are getting involved in presenting the program, which will make in-person sessions available to even more communities.
“We also can present the program live online,” Fields said. “We are excited about expanding Ford Credit FLIGHT and we are glad it is helping people.”
