Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) November 12, 2013
ClearPoint Credit Counseling Solutions, in collaboration with local and national organizations serving the Hispanic community, will host this important conference, free of charge, to reach Hispanics across the nation who own or who want to create a small business, by providing them valuable financial education and resources. Workshop topics will be focused on small businesses, and will be related to credit, financial options, budgeting, taxes and insurance. ClearPoint will deliver these free workshops on select dates through November 26, as part of their “Oportunidades Tour 2013”. The 12 host cities include Miami, Fla.; Austin, Texas; San Antonio, Texas; Fresno, Calif.; Los Angeles, Calif.; Sacramento, Calif.; Santa Ana, Calif.; San Bernardino, Calif.; San Diego, Calif.; Seattle, Wash.; Portland, Ore.; and Washington, D.C.
“Oportunidades Tour 2013” is a quarterly financial education week focused on topics of critical importance to the Hispanic community. The April launch focused on basic financial education, and transitioned to the topic of credit in June. In September, as part of Labor Rights Week, an established event on the calendars of the Mexican Consulates in the United States, ClearPoint asked consumers “What are you working for?” to emphasize the importance of personal financial education. And, in November, the jornada (conference) focuses on small businesses.
Over the past three years ClearPoint Credit Counseling Solutions has initiated collaboration with the Institute for Mexicans Abroad (IME) to promote financial education in Spanish. ClearPoint has been working aggressively, building its capacity and local relationships to expand its services to the Hispanic community. This innovative project combines the reach of the Mexican Consulates, serving 9 million visitors each year, with ClearPoint, a leader in financial counseling and education. Due to the initiative’s success, H&R Block became the first national sponsor of Oportunidades, serving the Latino community through tax and financial education, and providing tax and related solutions to meet their unique needs.
