We want to help youth feel empowered with the knowledge, skills and confidence they need to make smart everyday financial decisions and work toward their goals. But we know, it’s not easy to incorporate financial literacy into everyday lessons. That’s why, through WE’s partnership with RBC, we’ve put together a resource to teach personal finance and financial literacy. We call it It All Adds Up—because all those day-to-day choices we make—big and small, add up and set the course for our future. With the right tools and a little courage, students will be empowered to make sound financial decisions that make an impact on themselves, their community and the world.
It All Adds Up is a package of lessons that brings the financial world into the classroom and engages students to learn about the importance of understanding their personal finances. Students will learn key vocabulary for understanding money matters, develop their ability to set and achieve personal financial goals, plan cost-effective fundraisers and more. Students at the elementary level will also learn to track and analyze their needs and wants while students at the secondary level will create a personal budget to help them begin preparing for life after high school.
