Managing Money for College Students and Parents
Join us for a 90 minute interactive seminar offered by Lori Atwood of Fearless Finance. (You can read more about Lori in a recent article in the Washington Post). The course is called Money 101: Managing Money Basics for College Students, and it is designed to help students become more independent and responsible about money as well as learning about budgeting, planning for expenditures and preparing for the unexpected. Credit card use and other valuable topics will be covered.
The workshop costs $55 per family and the fee goes entirely to the presenter and to cover the cost of the space. I think you will find it to be money well-spent.
