Life is not about money — but how people manage their money impacts their quality of life, their family’s life and the life of their community. A new course from Iowa State University Extension and Outreach provides the tools Iowans need to work toward financial goals.

“Your Money, Your Future begins April 10,” said Katelyn Brinkerhoff, Buena Vista County extension Program Coordinator.  “In this three-part course you’ll learn how to make your money work for you.”

The course covers how to understand spending, use financial management resources and build personal financial management skills. It is sponsored by ISU Extension and Outreach in Buena Vista county and Iowa Central Community College English Second Language.  

The course meets on Tuesday’s April 10 and April 17   with all sessions are from 10-11 a.m. at the Area Education Agency, 824 Flindt Ave, ESL Level 1 Room. To register contact the Buena Vista County Extension Office at 712-732-5056.

“When you have sound information and strong skills, you can make your money work for you and for your future. You can manage your money effectively, make better financial decisions, and live according to your priorities,” Brinkerhoff said. “With sound financial management, you can be more financially secure.”
