How our program works
Our trained university-level mentors deliver our program through workshop-based sessions. The peer-to- peer dynamic provides a friendly environment which promotes open discussion. Who better to impact students than students themselves?
Statistics show that Canadian students are inadequately prepared to face the financial burdens of the real world. This is especially problematic when students are graduating with debt hanging over their heads. In addition, financial products have never been as accessible as they are today. As a result, it is crucial that every Canadian student has a strong basis of financial knowledge.
That’s where PennyDrops comes in. The heart of our mission is to promote financial success and economic health via financial literacy. Our curriculum is designed to leave a lasting impact on our students. The key to the program’s success lies in the relationship between our university-level mentors and students. We recognize that money is not always easy to talk about. For this reason, our mentors foster a safe environment encouraging students to discuss their financial concerns.
