Financial Literacy in Tennessee
Financial Literacy Podcasts
As a part of the national Feed the Pig financial literacy campaign, a series of podcasts has been developed. These podcasts are designed to help you take small savings steps today to build a solid financial tomorrow.
Money Management Columns
TSCPA distributes weekly “Money Management” columns on personal finance to all Tennessee newspapers for publication.
TSCPA has a variety of financial literacy programs targeting high school and college students. CPAs are available to speak to students on an as-requested basis about personal finance topics. TSCPA also offers a personal finance session to high school juniors and seniors who attend its summer Accounting Academy, a four-day program designed to expose students to career opportunities in the accounting profession. TSCPA is also currently hosting Financial Fitness Days at college/university campuses throughout Tennessee with volunteer CPAs available to answer financial questions and provide resources specific to college-age students.
TSCPA members took part in a special program in partnership with the AICPA that provided speaker training in several different areas, including financial literacy, small business success, accounting as a career and working in the public interest. These “CPA Ambassadors” are available and encouraged to educate Tennesseans about those subject areas through speaking engagements or the media. In addition to the CPA Ambassadors, TSCPA also maintains an extensive bureau of volunteer CPAs with various backgrounds and specialties available to speak to business, community or civic groups on numerous financial topics.
