YVC of Charleston, in partnership with the Palmetto Community Action Partnership, will hold a Youth Financial Workshop from 2 to 5 p.m. on Friday, January 18, 2019 in the Human Resources Training Room, located on the third floor at 75 Calhoun Street. The interactive workshop, geared toward youth 11 to 18 years old, will provide attendees with the knowledge needed to manage their finances, including education on topics such as budgeting skills, credit, banking, cost-conservation measures, couponing techniques, and more.
The workshop will serve as YVC of Charleston’s signature event in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. Chelsi Howard, Palmetto Community Action Partnership Community Relations Director, will serve as the event’s guest speaker.
City of Charleston YVC of Charleston Program Director Jennifer Gorham said, “Through this workshop, we hope to empower our young community members and set them up to achieve their educational and career goals through smart money management. From saving for college to building a credit score or buying a car, the goal of this workshop is to answer some of the questions youth may have about setting financial goals.”
