The U.S. Bankruptcy Court - Southern District of California has taken the lead with credit-abuse educational outreach for high school and college students through its Credit Abuse Resistance Education (CARE) Program. The goal of the CARE Program is to train young men and women to intelligently manage their credit cards and credit-card debt and to keep them from ever seeing the inside of a bankruptcy court.
