Interior Savings has adopted Each One, Teach One: a financial literacy program developed by Vancity Credit Union and, in the cooperative spirit, now shared with credit unions across Canada. Each One Teach One is intended to deliver basic financial skills workshops in community settings. The program has won awards for the impact it is having in raising financial literacy levels.
Delivered in plain language – and in local church basements, neighbourhood houses and community centres – the approach of Each One, Teach One is to meet individuals where they are, when they seek training to build the knowledge, skills and confidence they need in order to make financial decisions that are right for them.
Topics covered by the training sessions include: basic banking and budgeting, credit cards and prepaid cards, loans, debt smarts, credit scores, fraud prevention and much more. Participants can rest assured that the workshops are not a forum for a sales pitch. The intent here is truly to raise basic financial literacy levels and help people feel more confident about their finances and their future. Oh, and did we mention, there is no fee to participate?
