Who is eligible?

Everyone. Sessions are delivered in English and are for people who manage their own or their family’s finances.

Workshops offered this winter term include:

What participants can expect

Participants in the free hour-long digital workshops will engage in practical activities about financial knowledge, attitudes, skills, and habits that explore some of our “hottest topics” and a fundamental aspect of financial wellbeing, creating your own financial goals.

Come to one workshop or come to them all. Join the network and you will be invited to participate in a short survey that will help us plan the topics for the future workshop this spring and beyond.
