Consumer Credit Counseling Foundation Inc. (CCCF) and Tri Valley-Housing Opportunity Center (TV-HOC) are thrilled to announce the start of a new series of free financial education classes, taught by financial literacy expert, and long-time partner of CCCF Dr. Connie Dominguez. This regularly scheduled course is open to all but targets first-generation and low income Latino college students. The course will provide attendees with professional-level College counseling at no cost, as well as education on relevant topics in financial education. Dr. Dominguez’s curriculum for this class will include budgeting for college, post-college financial preparation, applying to college, setting and achieving educational goals, and much more. In addition to her work in the classroom, Dr. Dominguez will stay after each class for free one-on-one counseling with any of the students. All classes and counseling are completely free of charge to the general public.

Dr. Connie Dominguez is a financial literacy expert, professional college counselor, and the head of two non-profit organizations dedicated to helping first-generation and Latino college students to attain a college degree. Dr. Dominguez’s professional college counseling services are in high demand all over the Bay Area, and her cutting edge Latino-oriented education initiatives will directly impact STEM Education Programs in the Tri-Valley. CCCF is very pleased to partner with such an innovative individual, and looks forward to working with Dr. Dominguez in her effort to improve education and financial health in our community.
