Money Management Workshops provide students with an opportunity to learn about basic money management and gain the confidence, knowledge, and skills to make responsible financial decisions. The Money Management Workshop topics are Assets, Banking, Budgeting, Credit, and Consumerism. Students will learn to reduce their debt, power to pay on credit cards, pay bills and save for their future (even if they are living on a low income).
The workshops are an hour and a half of informational, introductory material with a takeaway booklet that students are encouraged to complete on their own. Students of all levels of experience and knowledge are encouraged to attend the workshops. Students are encouraged to attend all five workshop topics but do not need to attend all the dates for each topic.
