About the event

Are You Ready to Put Yourself in Charge? 

**Attend the entire GWUL FEC Spark Series for a chance to win a $100 gift card**

After understanding your financial decision making, savings, building your credit, creating your spending plan, and achieving your financial goals, what's next? Do you have a plan for how to retire comfortably and/or transfer your assets when the time comes? Our estate planning expert will help you figure out how to prepare for your next phase in your financial journey.

The new Financial Empowerment Center at the Greater Washington Urban League is hosting a "Spark Series" of classes to put you in the driver's seat to building a sound financial future for you and your family. Our series of classes, led by industry experts, will cover a range of topics from the impact of financial stress on your brain to designing your financial freedom plan. The classes are designed to be taken as a series as each one builds upon the material from the class before it. We encourage you to take all the classes in the series. Upon completion of the "Spark Series" you will be eligible to take advantage of our financial therapy and financial coaching sessions at no cost to you. You will also be entered into a drawing for a $100 gift card!

Our highly interactive classes are designed to include any learner at any level. At no charge but with a commitment to invest in yourself, you will leave with a pathway to take control of your financial future and the knowledge to build an empowering relationship with money.
