Bank on Brazos Valley (BOBV), an educational outreach program designed to improve the financial stability of individuals and families in our community, will host the “Passport to Financial Wellness” Credit Fair at the Neal Recreation Center on Thursday, December 7, 2017. This is a “come and go” event where you can learn about smart savings, improving your credit, and jumpstarting your child’s interest in financial success.
WHAT: Bank on Brazos Valley “Passport to Financial Wellness” Credit Fair
WHEN: Thursday, December 7th – 6 PM to 7:30 PM
WHERE: Neal Recreation Center, 600 N. Randolph, Bryan, TX 77803
This is not your ordinary workshop! Families will be actively involved, one on one, with professionals who can answer their financial questions. Participants will be given a financial “passport” and will travel through different educational booths with guidance from BOBV members. There will be two credit booths that present on what credit is, what credit scores mean, and common credit problems and solutions. In addition, there will be two smart savings booths, one for adults and one for children, helping families learn how to save for their future.
After completing the tour, participants will be given a final presentation “Remember the Reason for the Season” by the Financial Fitness Center, a BOBV partner. While supplies last, each will also receive a free financial tool entitled Is There Hope for Me. Food and drinks will be provided and there will be a chance to win gift certificates after the financial tour!
The Coalition’s mission is to provide financial literacy and financial management to families and youth to encourage financial stability through workshops, seminars, coaching, and financial simulations. The BOBV Coalition is coordinated by the City of Bryan with local partners from financial institutions, the City of College Station, Project Unity, and United Way.
