BROOKLYN - Borough President Eric Adams launched Financial Literacy Month at Borough Hall Monday in an effort to get Brooklyn residents on the right financial track.

Throughout the month of April, residents can attend free workshops and seminars on topics ranging from building your credit score to estate planning.

Experts say financial success can be achieved by savvy money managing, evaluating debt, determining net worth and much more.

Borough President Adams says Financial Literacy Month is important to young people who may not be aware of how to manage money and use a credit card wisely.
