With consumerism reaching all-time highs, e-commerce making impulse purchases more accessible than ever, and the rising cost of living impacting so many Canadians, we need to help black women take control of their money. Whether single, married, or in between, how a woman handles her money has lasting impacts on her family and future. This program will improve financial literacy for black women and girls.

 

Who Should Attend:

Financially Savvy girls is a carefully designed program for young women who want to improve their financial literacy and, ultimately, their economic competitiveness and long-term wealth potential

 

Program Goal:

To provide women with knowledge, tools, and encouragement to make thoughtful and responsible financial decisions.

 

Activities and Outcomes:

Throughout the 4-week program, young girls are given the tools and knowledge to manage their finances in a savvy way.

We teach them the principles of spending, saving, borrowing, and investing.

Back2School Backpack Fundraising Drive

We want black youth to attend and stay in school. But their chances of success are reduced without the right tools and support. This reality is why we offer the Back 2School Backpack Fundraising Drive.

It is a community initiative that provides vulnerable children and youth with much-needed backpacks and grade-level appropriate school supplies.
