Join the Babson Financial Literacy Project (BFLP) for three hands-on workshops that can change the way you think about money. We are a not-for-profit program designed to help young adults acquire the necessary knowledge and habits for long-term financial prosperity. While exploring real-world financial situations, participants will hone their problem-solving skills and build lifelong strategies for budgeting, building credit, saving, and more. Participants do not need any financial expertise, and only basic math skills are required.
Borrower Beware: The Ins and Outs of Credit Cards
Credit cards offer convenience and can be a huge help to building a credit profile, but they can also be a large source of misuse. This workshop provides insights on how to manage credit cards, their hidden costs, and tips to avoid credit card traps. Learn about credit scores and credit reports and what steps you can take to improve your financial standing.
Managing Your Money to Build Your Best Life
Paying your bills should be a top financial priority. You’ll also need to save for the unexpected as well as for short-term goals such as a vacation and long-term goals such as retirement. This workshop will help you learn how to budget your money and start building a nest egg for your future.
Protecting Your Personal and Financial Assets
There are some important—and often overlooked—steps that young adults need to take to protect your personal and financial wellbeing. How do you best protect your identity from theft? Who will make decisions for you in the event of a medical emergency? What are important health insurance basics you should know? Learn some key steps you can take today to protect you and your loved ones.
BFLP workshops are restricted to participants 18 years or older. Workshops are highly interactive so class size is limited to 30 students.
