Central Square Branch

Event image for Financial Literacy 101: Credit

Managing one’s own money in today’s world is tricky. Managing credit well opens many opportunities for us including becoming approved for auto and other loans and purchasing a home. Through an innovative game, “My Credit Score, Help or Hurt?” we see exactly how to make credit decisions that will help us reach these goals. Obtaining credit is tempting but costly and dangerous if not handled responsibly. Repairing one’s credit history takes time and patience. By seeking proper guidance, individuals can restore positive credit and enjoy the benefits that an improved credit history can afford them.

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. 

This program is a hybrid event. Participants can attend at the Central Square branch library or via Zoom. The Zoom link will be sent to all registrants the day of the event.
