My Money Works – Free comprehensive money management class with New Ventures Maine
Starting Monday, November 7, New Ventures Maine will offer My Money Works, a free five-week class to help you gain the skills and confidence to stretch your money, pay your bills, reduce your debt, find money for savings, plan for retirement, and set personal financial goals.
The class will be held on Mondays from 5:30-8:00 PM, meeting for five sessions from November 7 through December 5. Classes take place in Orion Hall at the University College of Bath/Brunswick at 12 Sewall Street in Brunswick Landing.
Pre-registration is required, and there is no fee for the training. For more information or to register, contact Erica Quin-Easter at New Ventures Maine at 386-1664, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or register online at http://newventuresmaine.org/schedules/my-money-works-48/
My Money Works is open to individuals and couples of all ages and incomes. Anyone who is interested in gaining greater control over your money is welcome.
Erica Quin-Easter, trainer for the class, says, “This course helps you take control over your money, instead of your money controlling you. Whether you are trying to make ends meet today or planning for your long-term goals, you will leave this class with a plan to achieve greater financial stability.”
Participants in previous classes say about My Money Works:
- I learned about managing debt, making financial goals and plans, investing, and how to check my credit report.
- This will help me clean my financial house and make better choices on spending specifically.
- I keep track of where my money goes and focus on putting more in the bank and investing it.
- This class was worth its weight in gold as far as giving ideas and setting goals for long-term financial stability.
- The training gave me hope and inspiration.
- I’ve become more confident in my planning with respect to money matters. I am aware of opportunities I thought weren’t possible before, and I am planning ahead.
Successful completion of the My Money Works class also meets one of the requirements for the Rainy Day Savings program, a matched-savings program that enables eligible individuals and families to double their savings with a matching grant of up to $300 for emergency expenses, as well as requirements for the Family Development Account program, a matched-savings program to save for business development, your college education, first-time home ownership, car purchase or repair, home repair, or emergency savings.
