Purdue Extension Service is offering training for individuals who are willing to help others learn more about where their money goes, and how to make it go further.
We all know that the economy is tight and many families are struggling more now than ever before. The big question of course, is what can we do about it, either for ourselves or to help others.
One thing that can be done is to learn more about where your money goes and how to manage it better. During March, the Purdue Extension Service is offering a three-part training program for individuals who would be willing to assist others one on one with figuring out how to better manage their personal finances.
The training sessions are being offered across the state by IP-video and will be offered in the classroom of the Putnam County Extension Office from 3 to 5 p.m. and 6 to 8 p.m. on March 9, 16 and 23.
Those taking the training need to attend all three sessions, but can choose to attend either the afternoon or evening sessions.
There is no charge for the training. The only thing required is a willingness to help others. The objective of the program is to assist individuals/families with basic money management skills, including tips for saving, setting goals and spending plan development.
Anyone who would like to sign up for the "Where Does Your Money Go?" training should contact, Purdue Extension Educator, Jackie Baumann, at the Putnam County Office at 209 W. Liberty St. Rm. 5, Greencastle, or call 653-8411.
