Financial Literacy Participant Handbook: Module 1 - Exploring our relationship with money (2011)

This document is one of the resources for a nine-module workshop designed to train front-line staff in community organizations to deliver financial literacy programs. The workshop was developed by the Canadian Centre for Financial Literacy (CCFL), a division of Social and Enterprise Development Innovations (SEDI). Founded in 1986, SEDI is a nonprofit organization that helps low-income earners gain financial independence through financial literacy, asset building, and entrepreneurship.

The handbook offers a variety of activities designed to help participants explore their relationship with money.

The activities are designed to prompt discussion. For example, one worksheet consists of familiar proverbs and quotations about money, and the participants are asked if they agree or disagree with the words.

Another activity offers the beginnings of a number of sentences about money, which the participant is asked to complete. One sentence begins “Talking about money makes me feel…” while another begins with “I hate spending money on…”

Other modules in the workshop deal with budgeting, banking and financial services, and the basics of credit.
