Financial Literacy

March 29, 2012

Action Read has partnered with ABC Canada to launch a new project called, Money Matters.  The project pairs volunteers from TD Waterhouse with Action Read learners.  TD tutors use their professional knowledge and experience to help learners understand basic banking concepts, as well as how to make budget and spending plans, credit and loans, savings and RESPs. The project uses a specially designed clear language curriculum for adult literacy learners, as well as the book Easy Money by Gail Vaz-Oxlade.  Thanks to everyone who has signed up to participate.  We look forward to hearing how learners are able to apply their new knowledge to their lives!
