Event description


Pre-registration and payment Required Before Class, this class is offered in two Saturday sessions: Jan 13th and Jan 20th. You can register for the classes individually to complete the series.

Jan 13th - 9 am - 11 am

Part One: Making Ends Meet:

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 how to make informed decisions about competing for financial priorities, and how to address short-term financial short falls. Participants reduce their anxiety around household finances and take steps towards establishing a degree of basic household stability. This course can be adapted to cover cash flow swings due to seasonal workloads.

Jan13th - 11:15 am-1 pm

Part Two: Budgeting and Saving for Your Goals

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. Spending leaks are transformed into opportunities for savings.

Jan 20th - 9am- 11 am

Part Three: Hands-On Banking

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. It can also be adapted to promote employer payroll preferences such as direct deposit.

Jan 20th 11:15 am- 1 pm

Part Four: Building, Repairing and Protecting Credit

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. This class can be combined with a credit café to help participants pull and review their credit.
