Miami, February 28, 2012 - A group of Miami Dade College (MDC) business students will get an opportunity to talk to their peers about money management and the importance of financial literacy during one-hour training sessions beginning this month through April.

Sponsored by Wells Fargo Bank and the South Florida Center for Financial Training (CFT) in collaboration with MDC’s School of Business at Wolfson Campus, the Hands on Banking sessions will focus on credit, budgeting, fraud and identity theft.

In train-the-trainer sessions, the Wells Fargo partnership enabled MDC professor Christine Balmori and bank executives to give the student trainers hands-on instruction with the goal they would apply those skills to their own financial literacy workshops.
