The Enactus Capilano University team is pleased to present our project Square One, which aims to educate youth on financial literacy and life skills.
Square One seeks to address the lack of financial literacy being taught in the current BC curriculum while ensuring students have the skills it takes to secure employment before they graduate high school. We facilitate this project over the course of five interactive workshops covering: banking smart, budgeting, savings and taxes, basic credit, and career development skills. Square One is a comprehensive community project teaching financial literacy and life skills to local Secondary School students. This project was created in partnership with representatives from RBC Royal Bank in August 2017. It was piloted as a course at Mulgrave School in West Vancouver in which students were able to attain credit for graduation. In the 2018/2019 school year, it was incorporated into all of Argyle Secondary School's Planning 12 classes in North Vancouver and started a relationship with Moscrop Secondary school in Burnaby that has expanded to include the majority of their Planning 10 classes.
