Financial Education Workshop
The 6-hour financial workshop presentations are interactive and engaging. Our personal financial course is designed to alert, inform, and educate students in concepts of personal finance and money management. Participants will begin to develop the skills and strategies that promote personal and financial responsibility related to planning for a positive financial future in the areas of credit, debt, savings, and charitable giving.
The workshop is aimed to help residents build financial knowledge, increase personal wealth, develop life-long money management skills and develop financial confidence.
Topic areas include:
- Designing a personal budget that will help you reach your long-term and short-term financial goals
- Summarizing factors that affect a positive credit rating, including on-time payments, debt versus available credit, length of open credit, and how often one applies for credit
- Explaining how you would revise your budget to accommodate changing circumstances
- Explaining the role that debt plays in an overall personal financial plan
- Identifying filing and record-keeping systems that will help you manage your financial accounts
