Free financial education will be available today on Fort Wayne’s south side.

No appointment is necessary to talk to a Fifth Third banker for one-on-one credit counseling and financial education, and walk-ins are also welcome to use one of the 14 computer terminals on each bus to access online homeownership and credit counseling programs.
Guests can also access job search and training software created by NextJob.
