The Budget Book is a simple workshop that helps students figure out where their money is going—pinpoint where it should go and how to redirect their funds, so it benefits them in the future. Participants will be encouraged to take a serious look at their finances—and might be blown away at how much of their money is not being utilized to its highest potential. The class will begin with a discussion about how students truly feel about budgeting. We will then look at their own finances by using monthly budgeting tools from The Budget Book by Sontia LM. Doing this activity will help participants look at their finances from a different perspective and be encouraged to find more freedom in their finances from knowing exactly where every penny is going.

Reconnect with your inner child through the art of mindful coloring! Join us as we experience the positive effects that mindful coloring has on our minds and hearts in this class! Perfect for the entire family and packed with creativity, colorfulness and fun. The objective is to help participants unplug in a fun creative way, help them engage with their friends/family around them and educate them about how beneficial mindful coloring can be for their lives. Participants are encouraged to observe and discuss the artwork provided and then select one of the coloring pieces that speaks to them. With the coloring materials provided, students will then begin to transform their coloring sheets into masterpieces using their own creativity. Coloring books will also be available for purchase during the event. Materials are provided; however, participants are encouraged to bring their own materials to maximize their creativity.
