Youth Employment Services (YES) is excited to announce the addition of a brand-new Financial Literacy, Capability and Inclusion curriculum to its knowledge transfer and training initiatives.
Developed by YES with the support of HSBC Bank, the new curriculum is the organization’s latest innovation in helping youth gain the attitude, knowledge, skills, and self-efficacy needed to make and exercise responsible money management decisions.
This 2-module curriculum package will provide youth with the skills and knowledge needed to perform basic financial management tasks such as accessing inclusive financial services, saving, budgeting, filing income taxes, understanding debt, navigating credit and protecting themselves against fraud online.
