Financial Literacy Workshops

Financial Literacy Workshops provide students with an opportunity to learn about basic money management and gain the confidence, knowledge, and skills to make responsible financial decisions. The Financial Literacy Workshop topics are Assets, Budgeting, Credit, and Consumerism. Students will learn to reduce their debt, power to pay on credit cards, pay bills and save for their future (even if they are living on a low income).

The workshops are an hour of informational, introductory material with a takeaway booklet that students are encouraged to complete on their own. Students of all levels of experience and knowledge are encouraged to attend the workshops. Students are encouraged to attend all four workshop topics but do not need to attend all the dates for each topic. Please register here for the workshops. Not sure if you can make it?
