ISU Extension and Outreach to host "Your Money, Your Future" class in November

Life is not about money - but how people manage their money impacts their quality of life, their family’s life, and the life of their community. A new course from Iowa State University Extension and Outreach provides the tools Iowans need to work toward financial goals.

“Your Money, Your Future begins in three communities this November,” said Jeannette Mukayisire, Human Sciences Family Finance Specialist. “In this two-part course you’ll learn how to make your money work for you.” The course covers how to understand spending, use financial management resources, and build personal financial management skills. It is sponsored by Iowa State University Extension and Outreach and Northeast Iowa Community Action Corporation.

The class will meet at the following Iowa State University Extension and Outreach Offices:

• Allamakee County Extension Office, 218 Seventh Avenue SE, Suite 102, Waukon: Thursday, November 16 and Tuesday, November 21 from 3-4:30 p.m.
• Winneshiek County Extension Office, 325 Washington Street, Suite B, Decorah: Monday, November 27 and Thursday, November 30 from 3-4:30 p.m.

Pre-registration is required one week in advance of set course date. To register call the Bremer County Extension Office at 319-882-4275.

“When you have sound information and strong skills, you can make your money work for you and for your future. You can manage your money effectively, make better financial decisions, and live according to your priorities,” Mukayisire said. “With sound financial management, you can be more financially secure.”
