COURSE OVERVIEW

Extra Ed has turned financial literacy upside-down. From boring and tedious, to fun and inspiring. Be warned, however, that this program will also turn your home life upside-down. From “mom and dad, give me money,” to “mom and dad, give me money…for my RESP!”

We have created an empowering, multi-level financial literacy curriculum for kids from kindergarten right through to grade 12. It features interactive group activities, easy-to-understand visual presentations, “net worth” tournaments, investment tournaments, and highly charged discussions. We also cover what it really costs parents to keep their little darlings fed, clothed, and educated for one year, as well as an outline of life’s big expenses, like education, real estate and retirement.

By the end of the highest level, students will know the ins and outs of credit cards, credit scores, student loans, chequing and savings accounts, registered accounts like RESPs and RRSPs, taxes and investing. But best of all, they will know that they are in the driver’s seat when it comes to their finances. In an era filled with unrelenting consumer advertising, false images of financial success, and easily accessible credit, our courses teach students how to be financial leaders, not financial victims; to be true to who they are when they manage their finances; and to understand how their financial choices impact not only their own lives in the short and long term, but also the world around them.
