  • @CFEE_ in partnership with the @OFSHEEA is inviting you to attend a virtual workshop designed to provide a toolkit that teachers of secondary school students can use to help build financial literacy capabilities for their students. The resources covered in this workshop are intended to assist teachers and youth with virtual and at-home learning activities during the current COVID-19 pandemic. 

This session will provide a primer on transitioning from in-class learning to virtual classrooms, and explore a range of strategies and resources designed to assist teachers in helping youth make informed decisions about money matters. Attendees will explore a host of financial challenges that occur as young people experience life events, including making decisions in a post-pandemic world. Participants will receive free resources to assist in their journey. 

This workshop will be presented by Kevin Maynard, VP of the Canadian Foundation for Economic Education, and hosted on the Zoom videoconferencing platform.
