Workshop Descriptions:


Take Control of Your Money with Budgeting
Reduce stress by building a budget that works! This is a proven way to help you gain control over money, manage debt, and meet monthly expenses. This workshop provides easy to follow steps that will help you to succeed.

Using Your Credit for a Better Future
Your credit score affects your interest rates on loans, your insurance premiums, and even your ability to secure some jobs. This workshop takes the mystery out of credit scores. Discover how to establish, build, or re-build your credit.

Credit Tricks & Traps
Used wisely, credit can help us live richer lives. But if we over use credit, debt can build up and feel unmanageable. This workshop explains how to make credit work for you, avoid credit traps, and reduce debt.
