The BPL-Babson Financial Literacy Project is a series of workshops designed to help increase your personal finance knowledge. Join Boston Public Library and the Babson Financial Literacy Project (BFLP) for three hands-on workshops that can change the way you think about money. BFLP is a not-for-profit program designed to help young adults acquire the necessary knowledge and habits for long-term financial prosperity. While exploring real-world financial situations, participants will hone their problem-solving skills and build lifelong strategies for budgeting, building credit, saving, and more. Participants do not need any financial expertise, and only basic math skills are required. Open to everyone age 18 and over. Register for one, two or three of these stand-alone workshops.

It covers the basics of investing – including the differences between stocks, bonds, mutual funds, and ETFs – and choosing investments that make sense for you.
