Workshops are a great way to hone your skills. The Barker Center provides a series of workshops at new locations each semester. Participants walk away with a host of resources and classroom ready materials to advance personal finance, economics, and entreprenuership instruction. Also, most of our workshops provide teachers with contact hours and a small stipend. Learn more about upcoming opportunities.
Just one of the advantages of signing up for our Newsletter is notification when new workshops become available.
