VOORHEES, NJ – Sept. 10, 2015 – Literacy Volunteers of America in partnership with Camden County Library and the Camden County One-Stop Career Center are offering three, free workshops to help women who need and want to develop their financial literacy skills.

The workshops are being offered at the following locations, dates and times:

Earlier this year Camden County Freeholder Ian Leonard, liaison to Camden County Library, announced that Literacy Volunteers of Camden County was one of ten ProLiteracy affiliated organizations nationwide selected to participate in the grant-funded pilot program.

“Workshops administered by trained facilitators with backgrounds in finance will be offered throughout the county,” explained  Freeholder Leonard.  “This will give participants the tools they need to take control of their money and the knowledge to achieve their financial goals.”

ProLiteracy received support for the program from American Express.  Pilot programs receive copies of New Reader’s Press “Control Your Money” workbook and gain access to a pilot mobile app focused on reinforcing financial literacy lessons outside of the classroom.

More financial literacy workshops for women are planned for next year. For more information, contact the Camden County Library System at (856) 772-1636 or the Camden County Career One-Stop Center at 856-614-3150.
