Brace yourselves to Get FINED - get financially educated, that is. The series of Get FINED workshops present a refreshing take on financial education incorporated with the use of art.

Powered by the National Youth Council and its Young Change Makers’ Grant, these uniquely designed workshops will include a creative self-expression session using art, and a series of relatable, lifestyle-appropriate sharing workshops with industry experts from MoneySmart.sg and Innervative. Targeted at undergraduates in Singapore, these workshop discussions will cover basic topics like saving, insurance, the Central Provident Fund (CPF), investments, and credit, based on what the different lifestyles need.

Get FINED seeks to help undergraduates express their financial concerns in an interactive manner via painting. This will help to ease undergraduates into opening up about their financial doubts, with the chosen lifestyle persona as a common denominator in the discussions. These workshops will be held in small groups of maximum 12 participants to ensure that participants feel comfortable asking questions. Their reflections on their paintings will then spark off a sharing and discussion session facilitated by financial experts.

These workshops are designed to cater to four lifestyle personas created by the team. Interested participants will be able to choose the workshop that best suits their desired lifestyle goal - the one who wants to start a family, the one who hopes to be able to manage credit and their student loans well, the one who desires to be asset-rich, or the one who would like to live comfortably whilst being able to afford the little luxuries in life.

I wanna Settle Down!

Family, especially starting your own, is important to you. You want to settle down soon, have a home to call your own, maybe even raise a kid (or ten) in the near future. To prepare yourself, sign up for the "I wanna Settle Down!" workshop! This workshop will discuss topics such as CPF, insurance, housing loans and mortgages as well as budgeting (for the big day, your future home, and kids).

I wanna Manage My Credit!

Student loans, credit card bills, housing loans… It's impossible to avoid being on credit terms in your life. But you can maximize and plan your financial moves, to manage your credit well and keep the bad debt at bay. Learn to do so at our “I wanna Manage My Credit!” workshop! This workshop will discuss savings, credit, insurance and CPF topics that are most relevant to helping you keep your credit score spanking clean!

I wanna be Asset-Rich!

You don’t just want to be financially stable, you dream of being more than that. You want to learn how to grow your money wisely and reap the rewards, all the while maintaining a healthy stash of liquid assets. Find that balance at our "I wanna be Asset-Rich" workshop! This workshop will discuss topics on investments, savings and insurance.

I wanna Live Comfortably!

You don’t need to live the high-life, you just want to live life comfortably. More than just making ends meet, you also want to have enough to afford the occasional holiday or to splurge on the latest gadget...all the while not feeling the pinch in your wallet. The "I wanna Live Comfortably!" workshop will discuss topics such as travel/lifestyle hacks, credit, savings, investment as well as money management.

Registration begins on 9th February 2015 on the official Get FINED website (www.getfined.com) and closes 26th February 2015. Admission to the workshops will be free, and places are limited to a maximum of 12 participants in each workshop.
