“41% of U.S. adults gave themselves a grade of C, D, or F on their knowledge of personal finance.”*

 

Help your community get educated about money by attending “Right on the Money: Financial Literacy @ your library,” an hour-long, live webinar presented as part of PLA’s “Public Libraries at Work” monthly webinar series.

You’ll learn how to offer a financial literacy program at your library, including how to train volunteer tutors and draw patrons in for financial management coaching.

The webinar will be led by Fernando Cordova, Holly Fulghum-Nutters, and Pat Jarvis, all staff of Project Read, a South San Francisco initiative promoting lifelong learning. These presenters will share their experience of creating the Financial Well-Being Project for their community and will offer program development tips to attendees.

This is not a free webinar.  For more program and fee information, please visit the web site:
