Thrifty Tuesdays helps your money go further!

Start your planning early because additional education can be a large unexpected expense.

This session is for parents of middle and high school students who plan to go onto post secondary schooling. Parents will learn how to talk to their tween/teen about money and plan for college, university or trades school.

From the presenter

Post secondary education is an important part of creating your teen’s future. It enhances thinking and social skills and increases employability and income-earning potential. However the post secondary system is vast, complex and oftentimes confusing. Navigating the system requires clear goals and significant planning. The good news is there are answers to your questions!

In the Planning Financially for Post-Secondary School workshop, you will learn how to:

  • Identify some good reasons to discuss money with your child(ren) (e.g. 1 out of every 3 post secondary students report that finances are very or tremendously stressful);
  • Talk to your tween/teen about money, including setting goals and telling your story;
  • Identify the costs for post secondary education beyond tuition and books;
  • Recognize the financial resources available to your child(ren);
  • Distinguish the differences between student loans and student lines of credit;
  • Help your tween/teen:
        - Understand the repayment process for student loans;
        - Understand what happens if they cannot pay their government student loans;
        - Understand the costs and benefits of paying a student loan back faster;
  • Identify the pointers and pitfalls that students can encounter when planning for and attending post secondary school

This interactive and fun workshop is 90 minutes! We take a “grab and go” approach – grab an idea or two and go try it. All participants will walk away with ideas, resources and the full curriculum upon request.

Free, but seating is limited. Programs that have low enrollment may be cancelled. Please register by phone at: 604-522-3971, in-person, or online.
