Partnering with Mount Carmel Clinic Produces Community Based Educators
The Strengthening Families in Canada Financial Literacy Project supports the economic and social integration of newcomer families from war affected communities through the provision of financial literacy.
This project is a partnership between SEED Winnipeg and Mount Carmel Clinic. Project partners built on the experience and knowledge of Community Based Educators (CBEs) to enhance and adapt SEED’s financial literacy curriculum to their communities. Utilizing a train the trainer approach, 26 CBEs from war affected communities were trained to deliver timely, culturally safe, financial literacy workshops in first language.
The results have exceeded SEED’s expectations! In the past year, CBEs delivered 128 workshops to 623 community members in 11 languages. Feedback from community members has been very positive and the demand for this project continues to grow.
