Dollar Works 2

Dollar Works 2

Dollar Works 2 is a hands-on educational program that is based on the assumption that personal financial management is a set of skills that must be learned. It was developed by educators from the University of Minnesota Extension Center for Family Development. Participants attend a series of workshops that teach basic economic and personal finance concepts to strengthen families’ skills in managing their finances, making informed decisions about their money and increasing families’ long-term financial stability.

People understand and use money within the context of their culture and life experiences. While there is no “right” or “wrong” way to handle money, some ways are more likely to increase financial control and independence.
