Each One, Teach One workshops provide financial education to community members who are financially vulnerable and helps build their knowledge, skills and confidence to make the right financial decisions for themselves. 

 

About Each One, Teach One

People living in poverty face many barriers to understanding the financial system, accessing mainstream financial products and services, and making good financial decisions. That’s why the Financial Pathways Collaborative launched Each One, Teach One (EOTO) in 2016 to help families and individuals build lives of financial stability and independence. 

EOTO is an innovative program that trains employees from financial institutions to become financial literacy trainers.  Since 2016, the Financial Pathways Collaborative (in partnership with Vancity Credit Union) trained more than 95 bankers to deliver basic financial literacy workshops to newcomers, refugees, individuals who face barriers to financial services, and people living in low-income communities.  

EOTO workshops are run in partnership with community service organizations and can be designed for groups as small as seven people or as large as 20. Workshops are free and take 60 to 90 minutes to deliver, depending on the topic.
