FAQ

What grade levels do you offer the financial literacy presentations in the schools?

We believe that kids are never too young to start learning good money management skills. We offer financial literacy presentations from kindergarten to grade 12.

How long is a presentation?

We try to accommodate the presentation time to meet the time blocks set by each teacher. However, our presentation times typically vary depending on the grade level: elementary 30-40 minutes, junior high 40-50 minutes and senior high 60-70 minutes.

Is there a cost for these presentations?

There is no cost to the school for these presentations.  If you are interested in booking a presentation, click here or contact schools@moneymentors.ca

Is there a minimum or maximum number of presentations that can be booked at any one time?

No. Our objective at Money Mentors is to provide financial literacy education to youth. We encourage teachers to book as many (or as few) presentations as needed.

What is the maximum number of students for each presentation?

Most of our school’s presentations require group interaction, are activity based and provide the opportunity to ask and answer questions. Because of this, we ask teachers to limit the number of students per presentation to 30. This will provide the optimal learning experience for the students and allow the presenter to engage participants. In the event that this is not possible, we will try to work with the teachers on a case by case basis.

Do I need to provide any supplies for the presentation?

Money Mentors provides most major supplies needed for each presentation.  However, there may be some presentations where students are asked to use their own paper, pencil, crayons or markers. Information of what may be needed for each presentation would be addressed during the booking process.

Is there any equipment needed for the presentation?

Yes, your classroom will need AV equipment, sound, laptop, and internet access.

Who will be delivering the presentations?

Money Mentors hires and trains youth presenters who are currently enrolled in post-secondary education to deliver the presentations.

Which cities in Alberta do you offer the school’s presentations?

We provide financial literacy presentations to schools throughout Alberta. Our major city locations include: Calgary, Edmonton, Red Deer, Lethbridge, Grand Prairie, Medicine Hat and Fort McMurray. We also offer presentations in bedroom communities surrounding these areas.

Where are the presentations held?

All of our school’s presentations are held in the classrooms of the schools we visit. We obtain the necessary information needed during the booking process and send out a youth presenter to the school on the date and time of the presentation(s).

Will these presentations work with the subject matter I teach?

We develop our financial literacy school’s presentations to align with Alberta curriculum for each grade level. Our curriculum tie ins include concepts and learning objectives from many courses.
