Financial Literacy Coaches
Our Financial Literacy programme includes eight weeks of workshops plus one-on-one financial coaching in your home. Outside these times our Coaches are always available for support by phone. All are Pacific and are trained in facilitation through our partnership with the Commission for Financial Capability. This programme is free and completely confidential.
We have a Pacific Financial Literacy team based in Auckland. Our staff know Financial Literacy and the pitfalls families often fall into such as high consumer credit. Within the programme we have Samoan, Tongan, Fijian and Cook Islands staff members. All are fluent in their native language and can provide programme facilitation in their own language, or cater to a pan Pacific audience as needed. They bring strong backgrounds in adult education, finance, disability, budgeting, policy, and more.
