A few words from our learners

“I strongly recommend the program… I was amazed at how much I did not know. The lady from RBC (bank guest speaker) was a real eye opener. The police officer who spoke of fraud was also a huge help. By tracking my money and writing everything I spend, I was amazed at how the little things add up. It made me aware of things like administrative fees, the importance of shopping around for the best price etc.”
-Edna Knorr

“… I met great people and had an awesome teacher who taught me a lot. The training really helped me. I’m more familiar with budgeting and goal setting and I know where all my money is going.”
-Emily Grant Gray

“The program is full of valuable and practical advice. The fact that it is free has no bearing on the quality of the program.”
