Finances for Kids + Teens

This workshop sets students up for life-long financial success. It teaches them financial literacy and smart financial behaviour. Assuming that money habits are formed at a young age and can shape their relationship with money, later on, we feel it’s important to impart good financial habits at an early age. By teaching students how to save and invest, we are hopeful they will take these good habits with them into adulthood.

Our Mini Money Management workshop uses an App that combines financial literacy with technology and facilitates learning about money through everyday experiences.

Students learn from real-life scenarios, make their own decisions, prioritize responsibilities, necessities, and budget for fun activities and unexpected expenses. We allow our students to make decisions and experience consequences in a fun and easy way. The Urban Camp is the perfect safe space for our students’ small failures!

“I watched unmotivated kids show up for this workshop and complete the tasks. A whole new sense of purpose-filled their day. The students’ mindsets about their role in society changed as they saw their ability to contribute to their tiny communities”
