  • Empower U Edmonton sessions run over the course of 20 weeks, 2 hours per week and includes a Matched Savings component
  • Program explores our relationship to money and its link to trauma and addiction
  • 1-2 day workshops offered in rural communities for staff or community
  • Advice on how to start a financial literacy program in your own community’s programs
