Financial Empowerment Workshops

Join HOPE Inside for free financial empowerment workshops.

Through our partnership with Operation HOPE, First Tennessee offers free financial empowerment workshops at our 13 HOPE Inside locations at the First Tennessee financial centers and the Church of God in Christ (COGIC) locations listed below.

We plan to expand to other communities across Tennessee in the coming months.

Participation is free and open to anyone who is interested in learning:

  • How to improve a credit score
  • Budget techniques to get the most out of limited income
  • Ways to pay off debt and use credit smartly

Three-hour workshops are held one Saturday morning each month at our HOPE Inside locations. Anyone who has completed a workshop can schedule a private counseling session to get one-on-one advice and continue improving money management skills.
