My Money Workshop educates people to manage their money wisely and to make a lifetime of informed financial decisions. My Money Workshop was founded in 2009. Workshops are delivered by volunteer instructors who are experts from all financial industries including asset management, analysts, banking and many more. Our goal is to continually work with the school or community agencies to identify the content that will resonate best with their participants.
Our workshops are designed with each partners’ participants in mind. While we utilize a set of standard lessons that are requested most often, our goal is to create workshops that specifically meet the needs of the individuals we are working with, to not only ensure that they are receiving age and audience appropriate information, but that it’s presented in an engaging way that will make retaining the information easier. My Money Workshop collaborates prior to the workshop date with host teachers and department heads at schools and organizations to ensure that we are best meeting the students’ and community members’ needs.
Since our inception, over 15,000 students have attended close to 1000 workshops across New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. In 2018, we held 214 workshops – our highest ever annual number – at 41 local schools and programs, serving a total of 2,632 workshop participants.
In 2019 we plan to serve over 2,900 participants and hold 270 workshops.
