Financial Literacy (HUB)

The Financial Literacy Program supports youth to develop a sound financial footing through building knowledge and awareness of how to earn income, access government benefits and credits, be an aware consumer, save and be smart about debt.

The goal of the Financial Literacy Program is to have youth learn how to deal with money, save money and manage debt. The modules are designed to help youth develop basic financial literacy and the following lifeskills:

  • Saving and budgeting.
  • Earnings and deductions.
  • Banking and credit.

Selection of module(s) to be used is determined through an interview, an assessment of risk/need and review of supporting documentation, in collaboration with the client’s identified goals.

The Financial Literacy Program is up to  5 modules offered one to two times per week and each module is 1 hour in length.

Hours of operation Monday- Friday 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. (Evening appointments available upon request.)
