Financially CLEAN Unveils Free E-book, The College Playbook --1000 Youth Attend Assemblyman Walter Mosley's 5th Annual Career

Assemblyman Walter Mosley hosted over 1000 teens at his 5th Annual Career Fair at the Shirley A. Chisolm State Office Building in Fort Greene, Brooklyn on Friday. That’s a lot of downloads!!! We officially launched The College Financial Playbook, a Free E-book there, which was beyond awesome.

They are Living Financially CLEAN and have the arm bands to prove it!

Every child that downloaded our free e-book on Friday received a Financially CLEAN arm band to remind them to pay their bills on time. 

Assemblyman Walter Mosley took the time to visit with us and see how the magic happens and how we are trying to share financial literacy one e-book and child at a time.  And we had to take one State Office Selfie!!

Financially CLEAN Launches Free E-Book, The College Financial Playbook

Financially CLEAN will officially debut The College Financial Playbook, the first of its series of free E-books, at Walter Mosley's 5th Annual Youth Career Fair on Friday January 26th at the Shirley A. Chisolm State Office Building in Brooklyn, NY.

With student loan debt being the largest form of consumer debt outside of mortgages in this country, Financially CLEAN is launching this free E-book to help change that.

We are always looking for creative ways to reach youth beyond the classroom, beyond our borders. Our goal is to advance the opportunity for every child to be financially literate before the age of 18.

— Dionne Nicholls, Program Director


The College Financial Playbook is a quick, easy resource guide to help high school and college students win 'THE GAME' --to not only graduate but graduate with minimal debt. Because if you don't know the rules how can you play the game? --Shaun Lynda, Founder

Hundreds of high school and college students attend Assemblymember Walter Mosley's Youth Job Fair every year, giving young people an opportunity to gain valuable summer experience, acquire skills and build their network. It is open to the public so it is certainly worth spreading the word.
