For Schools

World class education professionals, school boards and teachers recognize that there is an enormous gap in the resources available to truly inspire and prepare students for life outside of school, and the realities that happen when they leave.

When you consider recent reports on over half a billion dollars in Student loans written off in Canada , and 16 billion dollars in current student debt, right alongside a culture where students are continually blasted with credit card offers, Don’t Pay a Cent Events or Play Now and Pay Later type promotions. The reality is that something important is being missed to help give students a fighting chance.

Students leaving high school are lacking fundamental money management skills that not only allow them to afford higher education if interested, but will provide them with a framework to live a debt free life and help break a cycle that has led to record high personal debt in households right across Canada.

That same group of students are not required to take any type of test when getting their first credit card or even applying for a loan. Unfortunately most students have no understanding on the basics of how credit or credit cards really work. This section educates students on the key components of credit, credit cards and loans, so they can make informed decisions and avoid the pitfalls of debt.
There are two fundamental skills that are absolutely critical for students to master at an early age in order to set themselves up for financial success: Controlling Debt & Setting a Budget.

These form the back bone of their ability to create a plan to avoid debt while controlling their money.

But they also learn the basics of how to start thinking and what steps they need to take to build a more sound financial future.
