National Disability Institute (NDI), in collaboration with Wells Fargo Hands on Banking®, has released quick reference and disability supplemental guides that complement the Hands on Banking instructor guides for adults, young adults and entrepreneurs.
Hands on Banking is a free, fun, non-commercial financial education program available in both English and Spanish that teaches people, in all stages of life, about the basics of responsible money management, including how to create a budget, save and invest, borrow responsibly, buy a home and establish a small business.
The new guides are designed to provide financial educators, American Job Centers, Vocational Rehabilitation and community-based organizations access to resources and tools specifically for persons with disabilities.

Integrating Financial Education Programs into American Job Centers and community-based organizations Toolkit
In 2016, NDI and Wells Fargo created the Integrating Financial Education Programs into the American Job Centers and Community-Based Organizations Toolkit, which features six steps towards integrating financial education into existing workforce development and community-based programs. The Toolkit serves as a guide to integrating financial education within American Job Centers, Vocational Rehabilitation and community-based organizations that provide services to people with disabilities and their family members. Resources specific to the needs of people who have disabilities are also highlighted.
