My Money Workshop 2022 Annual Report
We reached 400 more participants in 2019 than last year! Your support guarantees that more and more people each year receive the tools they need to build financially successful lives. More than 3,000 participants received financial literacy education in 2019 ranging from youth at summer camps, to parents associations and other adults in several community partners.
Class sizes ranged from small to large; our Syracuse classes totaled over 100 students. Participant ages ranged from 12 to 50+.
You helped us reach more clients and host 280 workshops, an increase over last year’s 214. The increase was also due to a higher demand for ongoing programs and series at the following client organizations.
Crossroads Residence – Monthly
Regan Residence – bimonthly
Coachman Family Center Adult program – weekly
Coachman Family Center Teens program – quarterly
Mount Vernon Career Center – monthly
One Stop Employment Center – monthly
IMatter Programs – 3x/year
Peekskill Saturday Academy – weekly every 6 months
Peekskill Parent Resource – monthly
JobStar – 3x/year
Women’s Prison Association – quarterly
Our volunteers donated over 400 hours this year and traveled thousands of miles to reach our participants. They donated evenings, lunch hours, and weekends and shipped materials across the tri-state so that each My Money Workshop session could go off without a hitch.
We also expanded our volunteer opportunities for those who were not able to teach and received added support in HR, data entry, and event planning from several volunteers.
Every year we welcome new client organizations into our family. We are proud to partner with such worthy organizations. Welcome to those who joined us in 2019:
