Your Money, Your Goals Workshop

July 13, 2016 @ 9:00 am

$30.00

Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service will offer “Your Money, Your Goals,” a train the trainer workshop from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday, July 13 at the Parker County Extension Office, 604 North Main Street in Weatherford.

Finances affect nearly every part of life in America. But many people feel overwhelmed by their financial situations and they don’t know where to go for help. Frontline staff and volunteers in social services, legal assistance, community and faith-based organizations and worker organizations are in a unique position to provide that help to their clients by sharing information and tools that help to build financial empowerment. When staff and volunteers are equipped to initiate basic discussions about personal money management and connect the people they serve to qualified counselors and coaches, new pathways to financial empowerment are created.

Your Money, Your Goals is a financial empowerment toolkit developed by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau for social service programs, legal aid organizations and community and faith-based volunteers.

The one day training will go over the tool kit and provide information for front line staff and volunteer who work with clients and consumers to:

• Make spending decisions that can help them to reach their goals.

• Decide if they need a checking account and understand what they need to open

• Order and correct credit reports.

• Avoid tricks and traps as they choose financial products.

• Make decisions about repaying debts and taking on new debt.

Participants will receive toolkits for them to take back to use with their clients.

The cost to attend the training and to receive the toolkits is $30. This will include the toolkit and lunch. Continuing education hours are being offered for those needing it for an additional $10.

To register for the class, or for more information, call the Parker County Extension office at 817-598-6168. Download the file below for a registration form:
