Financial Literacy Workshops for Families

Workshops can be a great way to share important financial information. Gaining new knowledge can be very empowering and can help increase financial confidence.

These workshops are intended to be relevant and timely, with interactive opportunities to apply new information during and after the lesson. Every participants’ financial situation and goals are unique. We encourage each learner to pick and choose the information that best suits them and to make a plan for personal action. And we hope everyone has a little fun along the way!

Financial Literacy Workshop Materials

Two financial literacy workshop curricula are available in both English and Spanish. The first workshop focuses on budgeting and saving, and the second workshop focuses on credit management. The workshops were designed to complement, rather than simply repeat, the information in the monthly newsletters.
