Your Money Your Future WORKSHOP

Your Money Your Future

Technology is helping Americans get a better handle on their day-to-day finances, especially when it comes to routine tasks such as creating budgets and tracking spending.  Iowa State University Extension is providing an exciting opportunity for individuals wanting to learn the basics and best practices in using technology for personal financial management. 

The Your Money Your Future WORKSHOP will be offered from 6:00 – 8:00 PM. This is a hands-on WORKING workshop where participants will bring their own laptop, iPad or tablet along with their personal income and expenses for the past 1 - 2 months. The class will be limited to 10 to allow for privacy space between participants as they work and apply what they learn, to their own financial data.  “The hands-on approach to financial education is the key to making it stick,” says Brenda Schmitt, ISU Extension Family Finance Specialist. “ You don’t connect  to it unless you have real experiences.”

The September class will focus on creating a Spending Plan and Tracking Spending. Participants will also learn how to use an Excel Spreadsheet in Google Documents. The second class, a month later, will focus on Credit and Credit Reports and how to access additional online financial resources. Reserve your spot today by sending $20 and the registration form to the address listed in the registration form located in the upper right hand corner of this webpage.
