How does the program work?

Money Matters is all about what works for your programming and for your learners. That means you pick when the workshops happen. Fill out a Learning Centre Agreement form for the program you want to run, and send it to us. Then we ship you the materials!

Our workshops can be delivered in two different ways: by your staff, or by your staff with the support of TD volunteers.

Do you need a lot of financial know-how to deliver a workshop? No. Money Matters is completely introductory, and if your learners ask you a question you don’t know the answer to—even better. It shows that practitioners have learning to do, too! It’s an opportunity to find the answer together.

If you decide you want to request TD volunteers, just let us know on your Learning Centre Agreement. We’ll do our best to bring in TD volunteers based on their location and availability. Please note that requests for TD volunteers must come to us at least 8 weeks before your chosen workshop dates, so we can spread the word to TD about the volunteer opportunity.

Once the workshops are done, please send us the evaluation booklets! They’re what we use to adapt our material so it stays relevant and interesting to learners.

Resources

Training Guide
Our Money Matters core program and Money Matters for Indigenous Peoples program come with a training guide for practitioners and volunteers. It goes over how to successfully deliver the program, and includes tips and tricks for working with adult learners and talking about financial literacy.

Workbook
You receive one workbook for each practitioner and learner in your classroom. The workbooks guide each workshop, bringing your class through activities, discussion, and learning.

Learner Feedback Booklet
You receive one learner feedback booklet for each learner in your classroom. These small booklets capture learner feedback before the workshops, and after. They help us ensure the program is useful and making a difference.
