Workshops

Tips and Tricks for Managing Your Credit: Credit cards can offer many benefits but also create stress. This workshop will help you learn to manage your credit cards and avoid fees and traps. You will also learn about credit reports and scores and the steps you can take to improve your financial standing.

Managing Your Money to Build Your Best Life: Want to take control of your money but aren't sure where to start? Join us to learn how to build a budget, manage your spending, and save for the future. 

Understanding Your Paycheck: Do you wonder how taxes, health insurance, and retirement savings affect your take-home pay or how your status as self-employed or an employee impacts your earnings? This workshop will help you understand paycheck deductions and the financial implications of your job options.

Becoming Bank Savvy: Choosing a bank and bank account can be easy if you understand your choices. What are the differences between checking and saving accounts? Money market accounts? Certificates of deposit? This workshop will help you choose a bank and accounts that are right for you.

Getting Started With Investing: Do you want to begin investing but don't know where to start? This fun and interactive workshop will help you learn about stocks, bonds, mutual funds, and ETFs and how to choose investments that make sense for you.
