On Saturday, June 17th, RISE offered our Common Cents training FREE to the general public.
Common Cents, a workplace financial education program, was launched in 2007 in response to broad based concern about poor credit and bankruptcy issues in the Memphis area. Common Cents traditionally is offered to area employers for their employees whether salary or hourly workers the gift of financial literacy. The opportunity increases productivity, decrease absenteeism and create greater workforce productivity. More than 4,000 Memphis-based employees from 70 companies/organizations have successfully completed the curriculum
Our curriculum features topics for employees to choose from such as banking and budgeting. For this class we added:
Determining your money personality
Developing a spending plan
Filling in money gaps
How to change poor spending habits
Determining a short financial goal and determining what action are needed to achieve it.
The training took place at the Poplar/White Station Library. Those in attendance represented a cross section of the Memphis community. We are able to reach a greater population due to donors like you! Thank you for allowing RISE to do what we love.
