Fix-It Fair PDX is focusing on the well being of our community by offering free personal finance classes.
Fix-It Fair PDX typically hosts Portland Repair Fairs. These free events that bring together people with various skillsets to help to fix items and, most importantly, to pass on knowledge to empower you to be more handy around your home. Currently, Portland Repair Fairs are held virtually and cover a bunch of different topics, from bike repair to cooking on a budget to gardening.
Over the next seven Tuesdays, you can learn how to manage your finances with free one-hour virtual classes. Topics will include investing, debt management, budgeting and paying for college.
Here are a few of the upcoming free events where you can learn a new skill. These events are free to attend. You can register in advance for the events or watch them live on Fix-It Fair’s Facebook page.
