Don't Freak Out! (formerly AVA Conferencing) is ecstatic to present our 2nd annual Financial Literacy Seminar. Secondary and post-secondary students will have the opportunity to learn about important personal finance skills from a range of financial experts, covering important information through interactive breakout sessions on topics such as types of bank accounts, managing credit, scholarships and bursaries, and university/college living expenses. After a pizza lunch, students will learn about budgeting, spending, and saving in an interactive workshop, and finish off the day with a session on how to identify their spending priorities. Check out the official Tentative Agenda here.
By collaborating with fellow students in a group-table setting, and interacting with our engaging speakers and experts, students will gain a better understanding of how to become financially stable. Created by students, our event derives from first-hand insights from current post-secondary students, and is sure to cover topics that students can relate to.
This event is a fantastic opportunity for an educational class trip. Our event is limited in capacity, and tickets are expected to sell quickly.

What will be happening at the event?
A range of interactive sessions will be held during this event to help students gain an understanding of how to manage their personal finances. Our research shows that students are feeling unprepared about their financial knowledge about things like credit, loans, and budgeting/saving. Check out our tentative agenda here.
When is the event?
Our event is on Thursday, February 23, 2017 between 8:45am and 1:30pm. The event will conclude promptly at 1:30pm so that students and staff may return to schools on time for transportation home.
