A free financial literacy class, open to anyone 16 or older who is interested in improving their financial skills, is starting in Blaine later this month.
Sponsored by the Community Assistance Program (CAP), the Whatcom Dream Financial Literacy Class will take place on Mondays from 7 to 8:30 p.m. starting on September 23. The class has eight sessions and will conclude on November 11. It will take place at the CAP office located at 382 Boblett Street in Blaine.
Course topics will include financial goal setting, values-based budgeting, credit repair and debt management, insurance, banking, identity theft, home ownership, investing and more. Free financial mentoring is available to those who finish the class.
No childcare is available, so attendees are encouraged to make other arrangements for their children.
The Whatcom Dream is a nonprofit that has been providing financial literacy classes throughout Whatcom County since 1999. It is supported by grants from foundations and corporations, investment by local organizations and contributions from individuals.
