Budget, Learn & Grow in 2024! January 9, 2024

For many of us, 2023 was a challenging year in terms of navigating inflation, accommodating high-interest credit card rates, and deciphering headlines around student loan repayment. Staying on top of financial best practices is both time and energy consuming, and cost-free resources can go a long way towards alleviating stress.

Our nonprofit partner, GreenPath Financial Wellness, offers a variety of free financial education courses that you can take online, anytime.

Here’s a snapshot of some of the current courses available. They are quick and full of information!
