Welcome to the Beneficent Education Program, where we envision a community that is financially literate, empowered to manage personal finances, and employed at their full potential. We launched earlier in 2020 and have three initiatives managed by an interdisciplinary team:
- Financial Coaching Beneficent clients that are registered to receive a loan are now offered one-on-one coaching with the aim of helping the client improve their financial situation through budgeting assistance, credit education, and debt management. For more information on how financial coaching fits into our repayment model, watch the video below:
- Resume Critique In response to rising unemployment faced by our clients and community members due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Beneficent launched a free resume critiquing service, where we help you with the content of your resume/CV to make sure it is relevant to the job description by providing feedback and suggestions for improvement. To find out more, visit the resume critique page!
- Interview Preparation In order to better prepare individuals to successfully carry out job interviews, Beneficent offers one-on-one guidance sessions and mock interview practice to provide candidates with important pointers, advice, and the confidence they need on interview day. To find out more, visit the interview prep page!
In addition to the above, the Education Program periodically hosts financial literacy seminars/webinars and tax filing assistance. To stay updated on these events, follow us on social media
