Description

Pre-registration and payment Required Before Class. This class is offered in a four part series. You can also enroll for individual classes to complete your series.


Part One: Making Ends Meet Sept 6, 2017, 5:30 pm -7:30 pm

This workshop is geared toward participants who are struggling to make ends meet— potentially burdened by heavy debt-loads and/or living paycheck to paycheck. It is designed for those who are not yet in a position to pursue long-term household budgeting and savings, but who recognize the need to take control of their finances. Participants learn to use crisis management tools, such as an income planner and credit inventory. They learn how to make informed decisions about financial priorities, and how to address short-term financial short falls. Through this course, participants reduce their anxiety around household finances and take steps towards establishing a degree of basic household stability.

Part Two: Budgeting and Saving for Your Goals Sept 13, 2017, 5:30 pm- 7:30 pm

In this workshop, participants learn money management skills to achieve short-term household stability and take initial steps towards creating a plan for long-term financial security. Participants create and learn how to manage a household budget by tracking spending, managing variable expenses, and accounting for changes in income. Participants will set short-term and long-term goals and use their budget to achieve those goals.

Part Three: Hands-On Banking Sept 20, 2017, 5:30-7:30 pm

This workshop provides participants with an overview of banking services and how to use them successfully and responsibly. Participants learn how to make informed decisions when it comes to choosing a bank or credit union, establishing an account, and selecting other services. Participants explore how to minimize cost and stress while managing their accounts proactively. This course can be easily tailored toward the needs of first-time bank account holders with more emphasis on the fundamental components of using a bank account such as writing checks, making deposits, withdrawals, etc.


Part Four: Building, Repairing and Protecting Credit Sept 27, 2017, 5:30 -7:30 pm

Participants in this workshop explore the fundamental components of building, repairing and protecting their credit. This workshop helps participants understand how credit works and gives them the tools to access their credit reports, dispute inaccurate information and address derogatory items. In addition, participants explore how to make strategic decisions to increase their credit scores and how to protect themselves from identity theft and scams.

Workshops will be held on the 3rd Floor of the Lloyd Center Mall in Suite 2027 (between the Food Court and old Nordstroms)
