The Canadian Foundation for Economic Education is pleased to offer this learning experience as part of the Village Pilot Project (VPP), a mentorship, leadership and academic training pilot project offered jointly by the Red Fox Healthy Living Society (Red Fox) and Kupaa Foundation (Kupaa). This unique series of virtual workshops is designed to provide middle school and high school youth with a unique experience exploring concepts outlined in CFEE’s ‘Money and Youth’ and other related resources.
This workshop will focus on the basics around money: what is money; what do we use as money; the characteristics of money; the roles of money; the impact of inflation on the purchasing power of money; the Role of the Bank of Canada; and how financial institutions works. Discussion will focus on examples relevant to the age of the participant.
Each workshop will be presented by Kevin Maynard, VP of the Canadian Foundation for Economic Education, and hosted on the Zoom videoconferencing platform. Workshop participants will include youth involved in the Village Pilot Project participating with their leadership facilitators from the Kupaa Foundation at the Foundation’s location.
