Alejo Torres - Senior Outreach Program Manager

Money Smart Logo - Extended

Urban Asset Builders first welcomed Mr. Torres to Atlanta on February 11, 2013 for an introduction of Money Smart Week®. The meeting was held at the Georgia Center for Nonprofits and was attended by leaders of nonprofits, financial institutions, businesses and economic empowerment campaigns in our local area. The group decided to reconvene in the fall to plan for a powerful 2014 campaign.

It's time to reconvene!

Mr. Torres is returning to preside over this orientation and planning meeting where we will welcome new partners, share updates on the 2013 campaign week, and discuss plans and goals for 2014. We will also have committee reviews and sign-up (where appropriate) for: Kick-Off, College & University, Measurement, Media, Money Smart Kid, Programming/Curriculum, Promotion and Workplace committees.

Money Smart Week® is a public awareness campaign designed to help consumers better manage their personal finances. This is achieved through the collaboration and coordinated effort of hundreds of organizations across the country including businesses, financial institutions, schools, libraries, not-for-profits, government agencies and the media.

These groups come together once a year to stress the importance of financial literacy, inform consumers about where they can get help and provide free educational seminars and activities throughout the week. Programming is offered to all demographics and income levels and covers all facets of personal finance from establishing a budget to first time home buying to estate planning. The effort was created by the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago in 2002. Money Smart Week partners will be hosting their events April 5 - 12, 2014.
