The Annual Financial Literacy: The “Money Talks Workshop”

The 3rd Annual Financial Literacy: The “Money Talks Workshop.”

Friday, November 20, 2020, 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm. 

As a student, being financially healthy and avoiding financial stress is vital! The African Caribbean Mentorship recognizes the financial burden of post-secondary education. In fact, we, as an organization, are not merely here to support but also to empower you to be successful. There are challenges African Caribbean Black students face daily. Money should not be among them. In this annual financial literacy event, we are all about being smarter! Join us virtually this upcoming Friday evening to learn together, in an open and safe space. Topics of discussion include but are not limited to understanding the financial concepts, the Credit System and, most importantly, debt. 

Time

The event will last two hours, from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm. 

How / where

Zoom Technologies will be the platform used to facilitate the event.

Why

Various economic indicators highlight the financial gap among the Afro-Caribbean Black (ACB) community from their Whites counterparts, such as their net worth and the likelihood of carrying student-loan debt. A study done by the Global Financial Literacy Excellence Center suggests that one way of addressing these gaps is to focus on financial literacy.
