What I find great about a program like this is that it uses a learning model that is dynamic and, above all, interesting for young people.

Carrefour Jeunesse Emploi

Rosemont/Petite-Patrie, Quebec

At first, I didn't think that these workshops concerned. I'm 17 year old and I don't have any bills to pay or any debts. After you asked me to set some financial goals, I realized that this was something that it was for me. As a result, I was able to save enough money to buy my first truck. I also shopped around around and opened my savings account, which is helping me to build my capital.


Campbell’s Bay, Quebec

For a young person, free access is really important! I can take part in workshops that teach me how to make better consumer choices. That way, I can avoid mistakes that could cost me dearly! I'm a double winner!
