1. Start with Content
Our Money Matters program covers key introductory financial literacy topics: spending plans, banking basics, credit and debt, and saving and RESPs. Those topics, explained in plain, accessible language, are a big part about why literacy practitioners want the program in their classrooms: their learners are interested in the material. But it's not just about the financial know-how that learners are exposed to during the workshop. It's about the conversations that the program helps create.
2. Cultivate Conversation
