Financial Literacy Workshop Registration

YOS has partnered with Vantage Point Financial (VPT) to offer financial literacy workshops to all youth participating in the youth employment program. The 60-minute workshops will cover basic financial concepts such as the value of money, budgeting, managing expenses, paying off debt and interest, banking, financial products like credit cards and student loans, and setting goals. Understanding debt and having basic financial knowledge will help these young adults build a strong foundation of skills vital for financial security and independence.

Free Registration

Registration is required to participate. To assist participants, VPT intends to supply Ventra transportation cards to enable youth to travel to and from their workplaces without the burden of worrying about how to pay for transportation. We kindly ask that anyone interested registers in advance to guarantee a sufficient supply. When signing up, you can register for one class or for all three workshops.
