The St. Louis Agency on Training and Employment (SLATE) Missouri Career Center (MCC) announces June dates for its newly added workshop, Financial Literacy 101. The program is designed to help hundreds of St. Louis residents currently drawing Missouri Unemployment Insurance (UI) to survive on their reduced income while looking for employment.

The workshop will be held twice in June – the morning session will be offered on June 13th, starting at 10 a.m. and the afternoon session on June 27th, at 2 p.m. Both sessions will take place at SLATE MCC Central West End location, 4811 Delmar Blvd., St. Louis, MO 63108.

Financial Literacy is a collaborative partnership between SLATE and Morgan Stanley Smith Barney.

While attending the workshop, participants will learn to manage their money under constraints of a tight budget and achieve financial peace of mind in a situation of overall economic uncertainty, a housing crisis, and soaring debt. Attendees will learn to take control of their finances through goal assessment and working out a real-life budget.   

Similar to all workshops offered at SLATE MCC, Financial Literacy 101 is free of charge. To sign up, individuals need to come to any SLATE MCC office, either Downtown or Central West End, and ask SLATE staff about the next available session. The Financial Literacy 101 workshop is available to all individuals enrolled into the SLATE MCC system, not just UI claimants.
