Feedback from past classes:

"As supervisor of the Parents as Teachers program for the San Luis Valley, I have had the pleasure of attending mpowered Financial Education classes...These sessions have been very invaluable for our Parent Educators. Many of our families can benefit from Financial Education because they have very limited financial resources. Brian has given us the tools to help our families increase their financial security through positive proactive steps that improve their lives. I would highly recommend this program to anyone." Jeff Bilderbeck
