VT PoC is excited to host a FREE monthly workshop series focused on developing financial literacy skills. Each month, the virtual series will feature a different topic and speaker related to personal finances.
In keeping with our mission, this event is for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) community members as an affinity space for the purpose of bringing together Vermonters of color from across the state to build community. We welcome folks of all identities to contribute to the event.
These free sessions are held on the first Thursday of every month from 6:00-7:30pm.
