Infusing Financial Capability and Asset Building Content into a Community Organizing Class
Doran, Joanna K.; Bagdasaryan, Sofya
Journal of Social Work Education, v54 n1 p122-134 2018
As social work's fight for social and economic justice returns to its historical attention to finances, faculty are called to infuse financial capability and asset building (FCAB) content into their classes. Given few published models, this study contributes a redesign that infuses FCAB in a community organization course, with additional attention to Fink's taxonomy of significant learning experiences. Results of a pre- and posttest survey suggest an overall pattern of students' increased interest in further learning about FCAB, understanding its importance to social work, confidence about helping clients with FCAB, likelihood of offering to help a client to manage her or his household finances, and changes to students' own financial practices.
