The Money School: 12 Week Money Management Program
Class is full, Pre-register for the next Cohort starting in October!
This program will run tentatively from October-December. You will be asked to commit 2-3 hours per week to attend classes and 1 on 1 sessions with a financial coach. These classes will focus on money mindset, basic budgeting, banking, credit, income building and asset protection. Each week you will be expected to attend 2 (1 hour) classes led by local banking and financial experts. In the event you are unable to attend a session, they will be recorded for your viewing at a later time. We encourage all students to try to attend the live sessions as you will have access to Q&A with the instructors. There will be weekly homework assignments, quizzes and a final exam. We will work together to initiate an emergency savings, increase or maintain your credit score and plan for your estate. Successful completion of this program will earn you a certificate and a commencement ceremony. The best part about this program is that it is FREE. We require for you to be 18 years of age or older, have a source of income, a bank account (or ability to open one) and a commitment to reaching your financial goals. Below I have a included a link to a basic information form should you choose to enroll. I encourage you to do so as there are limited seats available. Should you have any other questions or concerns, don't hesitate to contact us and we will be happy to assist you. If you know anyone who this program may be useful to, please share!
