Hello and Happy New Year from Beyond the Bank!!

It has been a couple of months since our last post, and I’m excited to announce our new round of Beyond the Bank!!

Very similar to our last round (which you can find here), we are going to continue to have the Financial Instructors teach the first half of the class and then have the USC undergraduates finish us off by conducting small-group discussions with the Right Way students.

This cycle we had to rearrange some of our topics to fit different schedules. For now, this is our final schedule of topics!








Consumer Rights










It’s another packed schedule, and we are excited to see how each class turns out!! With this set schedule, the Cap Group and LIFT-LA are working close together to figure out which topics can formerly be in our curriculum. With USC’s help, we are going to create a stable curriculum so future courses can benefit what we have learned in our classes.

Now, let’s talk about the class last night! Like the second round, Aaron kicked-off our class by asking the students a simple question: “If you had a choice between taking $100,000 today or accepting a single penny today and then having that penny double every day for 30 days, which would you select?” And just like the last round, the students were engaged in answering questions and talking about budgeting and saving.

The USC undergraduates interacted well with the students. The Financial Instructors were clear and concise. Overall, it was a successful night!!

Stay tuned for next’s week course! We look forward to seeing you there!
