Additional information

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