Who are the Take Charge Cats?


The Take Charge Cats, formerly the Credit-Wise Cats, began in 2000 with just 5 University of Arizona students, educating their peers on campus. Today, the Cats have grown to a team of 15 ambassadors. The Cats have extended their educational outreach efforts by improving the financial literacy of youth throughout Tucson high schools, middle schools and community organizations.

Our Mission: To create financially informed youth in Arizona

We strive to develop financial literacy in youth throughout Arizona by providing free workshops to organizations, schools, and institutions in Tucson. Read more about the various workshops we offer here, and book a workshop for your class today!
