War on financial ignorance

   Washington State University Cooperative Extension invites you to join others in the community who are helping to fight financial ignorance through education.

   As an extension money management volunteer, you will receive 20 hours of free training in resource/money management. You will learn to teach your family members, community groups, and individuals how to use their money wisely and plan for the future. Budgeting, shopping for savings and checking accounts, credit card usage and repair, and record keeping are just a few of the things you will learn.

   All volunteers are asked to return 40 hours of money management education to their local community, schools, churches, and synagogues.

   The training is scheduled for five consecutive Wednesday evenings starting June 2 through June 30 from 6 to 10 p.m. All meetings will be held at the Northshore Senior Center, Room 201; 10201 E. Riverside Drive, Bothell. Parking is free, and refreshments will be served.

   For more information or to receive an application, please contact Shelah M. Johnson, Extension Educator and faculty, at 206-296-0296; 206-296-0952 (fax); or shejohns@wsu.edu (e-mail).
