Economics for Success (EFS) focuses on financial literacy, challenges students to reflect on their personal and professional goals and highlights the advantages of education and training for long-term success. Volunteers help students prepare a personal budget, assist with role-play networking, introduce interview scenarios, and teach students about career choices. Volunteers must attend a training session. EFS is currently offered as a virtual program and will be offered in classrooms again once conditions allow.

Please note that all volunteer positions require careful screening, and some may require a Police Vulnerable Sector Check (PVSC). Not all applicants will be accepted.
