Whether it's helping create a budget, providing tips to keep your money safe and avoid common scams, or delivering Each One Teach One financial literacy workshops, it's all part of building financially healthy communities.
Increasing financial literacy is core to our existence. A favorite example of this is Ruth Allan - known fondly as the 'Credit Union Lady' - who was the beloved administrator of the First Credit Union (then Powell River Credit Union) School Savings Program from 1957 to 1980. She is still credited by many of our members as the person who taught them the value of saving. Ruth's work is the inspiration for our purpose.
