    Are You Financially Savvy?

    Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service ~ Tarrant County has begun recruiting for their 2015 Dollar$ and Sen$e Volunteer program. The Dollar$  and Sen$e program is a train-the-trainer program that provides training on teaching financial management topics in the community. The training focuses on developing and using spending plans, tracking expenses, managing credit and understanding risk.

    Spending, budget and saving

    The volunteer training consists of 30 hours of educational training with a minimum of 30 hours give-back to Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service ~ Tarrant County. Extension has a long history of utilizing volunteers to assist in extending educational programs in the county. Extension provides research-based programs that offer participants unbiased information. To achieve the 30 hours of educational training we will have 20 hours face-to-face and 10 hours of self-study to complete on your own.
