A workshop to help you understand and manage your credit and how to start your credit history if you do not have a SSN. Maintaining good credit gives you financial negotiating power. It means easier approval for apartments and homes, better car insurance rates, lower interest rates on credit cards and loans, and even allows you to get a cell phone on contract with no security deposit.
