Personal Finance Classes

We offer personal finance classes through our St. Louis Builds Credit program. Our classes provide general financial knowledge to help you foster a strong financial foundation, build savings, and reach your financial goals.

We strive to make our personal finance classes accessible to everyone. Since the pandemic introduced us to virtual learning, all of our classes are now LIVE on Zoom. Yes, live! No pre-recordings here. During the months with no classes, we will host Facebook Live Lunch and Learns! It will focus on a new topic every time, so continue to check our Facebook for what’s in store!

Every quarter, for each class you attend, you’ll be entered into a raffle for one of two $100 gift cards for gas or groceries – your choice! The more classes you attend, the more chances you have to win!
