DETROIT — As a way to give the next generation a glimpse of
the auto loan process, Ally Financial is providing local students the tools for
making dream cars a reality by teaching them how to budget for their own
vehicles at this year's North American International Auto Show Education Day.
Today through its Ally Wallet Wise financial literacy program, Ally is offering free courses on automotive finance and credit to area high school students during the NAIAS 2013 Education Day.
The company explained each one-hour Ally Wallet Wise session will use relatable concepts to educate today's youth on personal finance basics, such as building and maintaining a good credit score, as well as the differences between leasing and buying a vehicle.
""Learning about personal finance topics early on can help consumers make sound decisions about their finances throughout their adult lives," said Gina Proia, Ally chief communications officer and head of community relations.
"Through the Wallet Wise program, Ally strives to make learning about personal finances easy and we are pleased to spend time with Detroit area students as part of Education Day to offer them tips on managing credit and how to budget for that dream car some day," Proia continued.
In its eighth year, the annual NAIAS Education Day is designed to provide an opportunity for metro Detroit students of all ages to experience the global impact of the auto industry as well as the excitement generated by major, worldwide vehicle introductions.
The company highlighted the Ally Wallet Wise program is a free financial education initiative that teaches consumers the basics of budgeting, credit, banking and investing, and automotive finance through live, in-person sessions and online at www.AllyWalletWise.com.
NAIAS 2013 Education Day is taking place today at Detroit's Cobo Center.
