April 20th is Talk With Our Kids About Money Day. This is a new initiative in BC that features a free and fully developed website for parents in addition to a free and fully developed website for teachers. The topic is financial literacy.
Last year, 2020 schools and 400,000 students participated in Talk With Our Kids About Money Day
across Canada. Research
shows the importance of starting early in order to promote the development of positive skills, attitudes and behaviours towards money.
Please encourage your school to register and explore the free lesson plans and activities. If the teachers don’t have time, please share this information with your parents. Most people agree that our graduates need to be more prepared for their financial futures. Our non-profit, non-partisan organization has a plan to create meaningful impact in this area and TWOKAM Day is our start in BC.
