The Durham Catholic District School Board has partnered with the Canadian Foundation for Economic Education (CFEE) to offer a virtual workshop designed to provide students in Specialist High Skills Major programs (SHSM) with a unique experience exploring concepts outlined in CFEE’s ‘Money and Youth’ and other related resources. The workshop will focus on: goals and decision making, planning for the future, banking, saving and the use of credit, budgeting to reach a goal, careers including entrepreneurship and the decision making around the transition from secondary school to the world of work, or further education and training (including obtaining and paying for post-secondary education) will be discussed in this interactive presentation. There will also be time devoted to the realities of the post COVID-19 world, and a question and answer session following the workshop.
This workshop will be presented by Kevin Maynard, VP of the Canadian Foundation for Economic Education, and hosted on the Zoom videoconferencing platform. The Q and A session will feature a panel of professionals to provide answers to YOUR questions around financial planning, money management and career exploration.
