Welcome to the Financial Literacy Program

Aloha! Welcome to the Financial Literacy Program at the University of Hawai'i at Mānoa. Since 2006, we have helped to build the financial capacity of our community so that our families can live responsibly, improve their economic opportunities, and obtain a desirable quality of life. This would have not been possible without the support of UH faculty, staff, student leaders, and financial professionals in the state!

Currently, this program is no longer active. This site is an information-only site. Please refer to the presentations and resources tab for more information and helpful guides on making informed financial decisions.
