NCALL offering free online financial literacy courses
DELMARVA – The National Council on Agricultural Life an Labor Research Fund is offering free virtual financial literacy courses for anyone who might need them. The three courses will cover a number of topics. They include budgeting, banking, lending and credit, managing healthcare costs, energy savings and lowering tv and internet expenses. “They are free of cost and you can do them from the comfort of your own home. We are doing them virtually, and that’s just a nice little bonus we like to add for clients and just reaching out to the community to make sure they can take the courses,” said NCALL Homeownership Specialist Dorothy Sharpe.
Sharpe says these skills are extremely important in every day life – and even more so now that people are feeling the financial impact of COVID-19. “We kind of need to know exactly where our money is going – where we’re spending it. That’s what we do in reference to budgeting and spending. If you don’t know where your money is going, you will not know how to move forward in life in my opinion,” said Sharpe.
The courses will take place December 3rd, 10th, 17th at 11 a.m. via Zoom. Sharpe adds that NCALL also provides homeowner counseling for free and virtually. To sign up, click here.
