SCCC 115: Introduction to Finance


Learning Objective:
The learner will get a better understanding of financial literacy, how cash flows through their organization and the importance of maintaining an operating surplus.
 
Course Significance:
Every senior center director or senior nutrition program manager has felt the pressure of not having enough money to do what they think needs to be done. They often feel helpless, or powerless, not knowing how to make things better. That helpless feeling is almost always a result of not knowing what to do or how to make things better. This series of courses will help address that feeling of helplessness. It is designed to give you additional knowledge about your organization’s finances, new skills to help you manage those finances, and change your perspectives and attitudes about finances. With improved knowledge, skills and attitudes, we can change our behaviors and those of the people we work with in order to make sound financial decisions for our organizations.
