Free Financial Help--Every 2nd Thursday!

SEVCA’s Economic Development Department is offering free “Mind Your Money” workshops on the second Thursday of every month at its Westminster office. The next workshop is Thursday, June 8 from 10 AM to noon.

 The workshops are open to the public and are designed to introduce participants to basic money management techniques and to help them work through their budgeting challenges. SEVCA’s instructors will utilize tools from the acclaimed Your Money Your Goals curriculum developed by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau to help participants set and meet their financial goals. Instructors have over 20 years of leadership experience in the financial and small business development sectors.

“It’s really about financial empowerment,” said Denise Mason, Economic Development Director at SEVCA. “Once you take a detailed look at your spending patterns, almost everyone can find some areas where they can be smarter with their money. These workshops are designed to be very user-friendly, introductory workshops that don’t require any further commitment. But people can come as often as they’d like to continue to get support to make the changes they decide are in their best interests.”

Workshops will be held at 91 Buck Drive in Westminster. SEVCA asks that participants register for these free workshops in advance by calling 802-722-4575 ext.150. Walk-ins may also be accommodated.
