Financial Literacy Workshop: What do you know about $$?

Thursday, February 07 2013
5:30 am - 6:30 am

Adults are welcome to learn about financial literacy and learn about saving, spending, borrowing, and tracking your money.  Representatives of Citibank  and East River Development Alliance´s "Financial Fitness Program" will help you translate and understand the often complicated financial language of banking. Join us for this informative workshop.

The East River Development Alliance (ERDA) Financial Fitness Program (FFP) offers a suite of financial empowerment services provided in English and Spanish, including one-on-one crisis counseling and long-term asset building counseling (including financial goals related to income supports and public housing-specific tenant advocacy), community-based financial education workshops, free tax preparation for low-income earners and comprehensive public benefits screening and enrollment.  All clients have access to the full array of ERDA programs, including access to financial services and products (all asset building vehicles) at the ERDA Federal Credit Union.

Damara Parra will facilitate the workshop through a presentation,  games as well as exchanging ideas. She has long been involved in a variety of programs to empower the immigrant community in New York. As Financial Literacy Educator at Qualitas of Life Foundation, Damara conducted financial literacy workshops for low income families in New York. Her passion for financial education led her to the Financial Fitness Program at ERDA, where she provides one-on-one short-term crisis counseling, long-term asset building counseling and leads the community-based financial education workshops for public housing residents and the community in general.

This program is presented in collaboration with East River Development Alliance.


An array of snacks will be generously provided by BzGrill.
