Financial Wellness Workshops

As part of developing institutional capacity to address budget and credit enrollment threats, the California Community College Chancellor’s Office and Allan Hancock College are partnering to provide interactive money management professional development workshops for faculty, staff and students. These engaging workshops are designed to enable participants to become comfortable in their own personal financial foundation.

Staff and faculty workshops are geared to help participants gain an understanding into the basics of becoming a financial educator by:

  1. disseminating information about the basics of financial planning;
  2. exploring common financial issues faced by students;
  3. preparing participants to have informed conversations concerning money-related matters with Allan Hancock College students.

Student workshops will enable student ambassadors and other peer leaders to listen for and respond intentionally and usefully about financial issues faced by Allan Hancock College students.

Workshops are generally 90-minutes long and conducted at various times throughout the semester. Currently, all workshops are presented via Zoom. Participants who complete the entire series will receive a Certificate of Completion from the California Community College Chancellor's Office.
