Managing one’s own money in today’s world is tricky.  Checking accounts provide us with convenient access to our money and help us manage our finances carefully. Understanding how to keep track of a checking account helps people stay on budget and avoid costly fees. In this session, we explore how to get good value from a bank by avoiding fees and keep close control over our money.

This workshop is part of four workshops in collaboration with Cambridge Savings Bank. By learning and applying the concepts from these interactive workshops, participants will better understand and practice managing their money wisely, begin to build savings, avoid unmanageable debt, improve their credit and shield themselves from fraud.

Participants are welcome to register for just one or all of the workshops. No previous participation necessary.

This program is a virtual event and takes place on Zoom. The Zoom information will be sent to participants one hour prior to the event.
