SLATE offers financial literacy workshop

Upon graduation, participants will either seek employment or explore post-secondary education opportunities.

This week, AEL is offering a workshop on financial literacy.

It’s set for Wednesday, May 31, at 10 a.m. and will be led by Reginald Garth of Operation Hope.
