Over at ACCC, it felt the same way. To learn more about what the nonprofit credit counseling agency was up to in September, check out these articles:
The financial education team at ACCC celebrated the graduation of their students in the South Middlesex Opportunity Council’s (SMOC) 2013 Summer Jobs for Youth program.

The students excelled at their internships and received high praise and constructive feedback from their site supervisors. To read more about the program, check out the article here.

The poll looked at how student loan debt is holding consumers back from financial freedom, such as living independently, getting married, and saving for retirement.
