TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — Free tutoring, job skills and financial literacy training sessions will soon be available to West Alabama residents, including veterans and teens, through The University of Alabama’s Culverhouse College of Business.“It’s a one-on-one tutoring relationship between the student and the participant,” said Lisa McKinney, accounting lecturer, LIFT program coordinator and a certified public accountant. “Some programs have a virtual option allowing for working professionals to participate in classes from afar.” Culverhouse LIFT, or Learning Initiative and Financial Training, will begin classes for its fall 2022 term in September. Sponsored by the Culverhouse College of Business and Culverhouse School of Accountancy, the program uses student volunteers from within the college to work with community participants in a classroom setting. In addition to computer skills, Quickbooks software and bookkeeper training, LIFT also offers tutoring for youth and teens.
Registration and specific course descriptions are available on the Culverhouse LIFT website.
