Financial Fitness: Taking Control of Your Finances

Learn how to take control of your money and move towards financial independence at one of our upcoming workshops!

This will be a crash course on essential topics such as: credit cards & credit scores, budgeting, emergency funds, debt management, and tips for savings & investing. We’ll also explore the emotional side of money, and how we can shift our habits and mindsets to move towards the lives we want for ourselves. By the end of this workshop, you’ll be equipped with the tools you need to feel more confident engaging in your finances, PLUS you’ll have access to additional financial workshops for students and 1 on 1 consultations. Don’t miss out on this valuable opportunity!

Each session will take place at Hillel JUC and will kick off with a full group dinner, followed by an interactive financial literacy workshop facilitated by Emily Collyns. These workshops are geared towards women & gender non-conforming folks, and people of every religious affiliation, race, culture, gender identity, sexual orientation, and ability are welcome.
