108 - CARE Program and Dangers of Youth Credit Abuse

The latest ABI podcast features ABI Executive Director Sam Gerdano speaking with retiring Bankruptcy Judge John C. Ninfo II (W.D.N.Y.; Rochester), the founder of the Credit Abuse Resistance Education (CARE) Program. The program, which ABI started administering at the end of 2011, was founded by Judge Ninfo in 2002 to motivate young people to understand and appreciate the techniques necessary to avoid the severe consequences of credit abuse. Judge Ninfo discusses how bankruptcy professionals, judges, trustees, attorneys and court staff comprise the CARE volunteer network, which spans all 50 states and the District of Columbia. In live presentations, these professionals share with high school and college students their unique knowledge, experiences and credibility on the basics of personal finance, household budgeting and the dangers of financial illiteracy.Be sure to visit the recently relaunched CARE website at http://care4yourfuture.org/
