Getting You and Your Family Financially Fit!
In these times no one is immune to the notion of financial responsibility. From
Main Street to Wall
Street, everyone is touched by the drive, desire, or need to have money. The
economic recovery is moving with glacial speed, while the cost of even the most
basic needs is rising meteorically unable to keep pace with the daily grind.
Parents of school-age children feel this relentless pressure every day and part
of ParentJobNet’s mission is to help relieve that pressure.
PJN believes that one way to accomplish this is by having the right tools to address the task, so PJN and P.S 84 is sponsoring a Financial Literacy Workshop for Families – “Learning the Basics about Financial Fitness”. The three-part workshop will be held on May 31, June 7 and June 14, 2012 from 3:30-4:30 p.m. on Thursdays at P.S. 84,
32 W. 92nd St., Room 132, . New York, N.Y.
The three-part workshop workout begins with a session called “Getting Started with Change – Moving Towards a New You”. The second workout is titled “Déjà vu in the New Old Year – Fitting in Fitness in 2012” and the final workshop is named “Happy, Healthy and Wealthy – Building Blocks for a More Fulfilling Life”. The workshops will be facilitated by Donna Desideri and John Pearson. “I’m very excited about bringing the program to ParentJobNet,” said Desideri. “The program can suit the needs of the people in the community and I’m happy to do that.” Pat Craddick, Executive Director/Founder of ParentJobNet added, “Helping families become financially fit is a core part of our mission, so I’m delighted to partner with this group to bring this interactive financial literacy workout program to ParentJobNet.”
The workshops are for parents and children and anyone interested can register online at http://www.parentjobnet.org/financial-literacy-workshops.aspx or with Anita Hauschild, PS 84 Parent Coordinator. You may contact us at 212-362-2735 / 917-546-9104 for more information.
