Launch Okanagan’s workshops sponsored by MNP will run this fall on Zoom
October 16, 2023 (Kelowna, BC) – Participate in Financial Literacy Month by reviewing your finances. Sponsored by MNP, Launch Okanagan is hosting free, one-hour Zoom workshops on November 9 and 23 starting at 6:30 pm. Everyone is welcome!
Launch My Budget is the first in the two-part series. Participants will learn how to create a budget and, more importantly, how to stick to it. They will review the steps to follow when creating a budget and will be given some tips and tools to help them integrate budgeting into their life. After the workshop, all participants will be provided with a budgeting guide and other tools and resources to help keep their budget organized and up to date.
Managing Debt 101 is the second workshop that tackles the big, and often stressful, topic of debt. Many Canadians struggle to talk about money, especially when it involves discussing debt. This workshop helps participants take a step back, review their debt situation, and create strategies on how to work on repaying and taking control of their debt.
“At MNP, we believe that financial literacy is a key component to personal and community success, and we are proud to partner with Launch Okanagan to bring these workshops to our community,” says Jeané Herman, Kelowna Licensed Insolvency Trustee. “Through this partnership, our goal is to provide individuals with practical tools and resources to take control of their finances, to reduce stress, and to build a better future for themselves and their families.”
Both workshops will be delivered on Zoom and facilitated by Jennifer Robins, Executive Director of Launch Okanagan. If you can’t join either workshop live, you can still register, and you will be emailed a recording of the class and any related materials. You may choose to join one or both workshops, and all levels of participation are welcome. Participants can choose to interact and ask questions or simply listen and be an anonymous participant.
“At Launch Okanagan, we understand the real challenges that people are currently facing with their finances,” says Jennifer Robins, Executive Director. “Now more than ever it’s important to learn practical financial skills that you can put into action right away. Building your financial skills will also help to build your confidence and ability to make sound financial decisions.“
