The grant that provides Get $mart workshops is ending, but thanks to the support of The Bishop Foundation, the workshops will continue! The new program will be called FITT (Finding Independence Through Technology) and will provide workshops focused on job-searching and technology. The schedule will continue to be updated here.

View the video from our event marking the culmination of the Get $mart/FINRA grant and our transition to FITT with the support of The Bishop Foundation!
