SRC Advocacy partnered with Emma from The Broke Generation to deliver a series of Financial Wellbeing Workshops focused on increasing students’ financial literacy and confidence to implement saving strategies over the short and long term.
The first online workshop introduced the concept of financial wellbeing and covered important topics such as money mindset and financial personality, basic budgeting, handy savings strategies, and how to conduct a monthly money review.
Workshop 2: Financial Literacy Foundations
Emma’s second workshop in our Financial Wellbeing Series focuses on building students’ financial literacy by starting with the basics.
This workshop covered essential points such as living below your means while building your savings, debt management, tax basics, interest rates, bank accounts, credit cards and everyday budgeting.
We also encourage you to check out The Broke Generation for more information about how you can increase your financial literacy through handy money-saving tips.
Workshop 3: Budgeting and Spending 101
For the third workshop in our Financial Wellbeing Series, Emma from The Broke Generation ran through everything you need to know to set up your budget and effectively implement your savings strategies.
This workshop focused on understanding your spending personality and how this influences your spending behaviours, unlearning unhelpful financial thought patterns, setting up savings accounts and emergency funds, and how to set up and implement your budget.
Emma’s 90-Day Cash Flow Plan (available on Wellness HQ) is a great resource to help you understand how you spend your money and set up your budget.
