What is the mission of My Money Workshop?
My Money Workshop’s mission is to educate people to manage their finances wisely and to make a lifetime of informed decisions. We teach people to understand the decisions they make about money so they can build positive financial futures.
We know that education alone does not change behavior. We create individualized and customized financial literacy workshops that help empower community members on their personal journey towards financial self-sufficiency. We partner with community organizations to give students and adults the resources they need to be set up for economic success. We educate and empower individuals to manage their finances, as little or as much as they have, wisely. We teach them to make educated and informed decisions that will have a positive impact in their lives.
Our aim is to use the power of education to bring awareness to people’s potential to manage their finances. When you feel empowered, you have no barriers to the things you can accomplish. Knowledge and hope are infectious. Our programs give people hope that they can become financially self-sufficient, which in turn helps inspire their families and communities.
How does My Money Workshop Work?
My Money Workshop partners with public/private high schools, colleges, universities, specialty schools and community-based organizations to deliver highly interactive workshops to students and community members. We have created financial literacy courses designed for all audiences from school aged kids, college students, individuals in prison re-entry programs, and retirement communities among others. Workshops are delivered by Volunteer Instructors who are experts from all financial industries. Our goal is to continually work with the school or community agency to identify the content that will resonate best with students.
