In order to more fully address the needs of unemployed and underemployed residents, Cook County Works has enlisted the help of Bank of America to teach workshops on addressing financial issues that arise during periods of economic stress. Bank of America has trained a corps of 86 volunteers who will be facilitating these workshops in Cook County Works’ One-Stop employment training centers in Cicero, Chicago Heights, Maywood and Oak Forest, Illinois. Topics covered in the workshops will include: saving, budgeting and money management after a financial setback. The workshops are scheduled to commence bi-weekly, from October 18 through November 30, 2011.
