Financial Literacy

school programs

In Partnership with Prosper Canada, our goal is to equip people with the knowledge, skills and confidence they need to make informed decisions about their money and the best use of financial resources available to them.

The Financial Literacy training is designed to provide a strong BASIC foundation for participants to build their financial literacy. The workshop provides a wealth of information about money management. By the end of the workshop sessions, our hope is that the participants can connect this material to their own lives, reflect on its meaning, grasp the concepts of money management, and apply them.

How it works?

The nine modules in the curriculum cover the following topics:

  1. Our Relationship with Money
  2. Creating Income & Basics of Taxes
  3. Budgeting
  4. Banking and Financial Services
  5. Savings Tool Basics
  6. Credit Basics
  7. Credit reporting
  8. Debt Management
  9. The Wise consumer

The financial literacy workshop series vary in length depending on your needs. Local coordinators can work with you to discuss schedule and appropriate workshops that suit the group. Materials and lessons are provided.
