(Nearly) Broke and Trying to Save the World: Working with Millennials in Public Service
Amber got a wake up call one day when she realized the student loan debt she thought she’d been whittling away at over the past decade had not shrunk, but grown. Spurred on by fears that she and her peers could no longer trust financial institutions and programs such as the Public Service Loan Forgiveness meant to help her generation eventually rise above debt and earn financial security, she wanted to take action. But who could she call? Financial planners were for rich people with money to throw around, weren’t they?
