CentsABLE is a financial literacy program run by Enactus Usask that educates and promotes financial well being to those who need it the most. The program started over 10 years ago by informing young women who aspired to attend post-secondary education but lacked the financial skills or resources to do so. Over the years, CentsABLE had grown into a program that educated youth, at-risk individuals and university students in general financial literacy.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, our team has been working hard to revamp the CentsABLE workshop to provide the most up-to-date financial literacy information to those in need. For a press release of CentsABLE's new beginnings, visit this link.
Starting in 2021, CentsABLE, sponsored by Crown Investments Corporation of Saskatchewan, will resume presenting workshops, but now in an online format. Workshop topics will be directed towards newcomers and educating them on topics of budgeting, and COVID-19 grants, with even more topics coming soon.
Registration for the workshops can by done by clicking the big blue button at the top of the page, or by visiting the following google form link: https://forms.gle/8FmewgeC57FWo1AQ8. Anybody who attends one of the workshops after registration will be entered in a draw to win a $25 Amazon gift card.
