Alternatives' money management course MoneyWise provides people with the tools to confront financial issues in their lives. Topics covered include; income and debt, expense tracking, setting and saving toward goals, practical economics, record keeping, insurance, predatory lending, establishing & repairing credit, conscientious consuming, and investment options.
While other financial education courses are primarily geared towards providing information and worksheets, the MoneyWise course walks students through the behavior change process. We believe that instead of overwhelming our students with templates to solve their financial troubles, we identify the individual as the instrument of change. MoneyWise requires only one task - tracking expenses. Our goal is to see people realize that they have the ability to change and use that realization to confront their own financial issues and begin managing their money.
MoneyWise meets once a week for seven weeks and is offered four times a year. If you are interested contact Brendan Wilbur at 216-3445.
