Banking on Youth Project Update
Banking on Youth
Vibrant Abbotsford recognizes that youth need knowledge, skills and confidence to become and stay economically self-sufficient. The Banking on Youth project supports youth's competent financial decisions that can equip them against poverty. Money Skills workshops are delivered to youth aged 12-25 years via local youth-serving agencies, schools, and to the general public. The workshops provide youth with strategies on how to navigate new financial territories with confidence and effectively manage money, avoid spending temptations, maximize savings and build good habits for life. They become equipped to make positive financial choices, are less vulnerable to financial pitfalls, and are less likely to fall into poverty.
