Immigrants in Chicago are being urged to move their money from boxes into a bank.

An immigrant coalition known as 'Cali' is working with the Chicago Treasurer's office to offer free financial literacy classes.

Students will learn such skills as how to budget, save for retirement and build wealth along with one big goal.

This pilot program will start in four ethnic neighborhoods around the city.
