Yesterday’s Mirror included a special feature article by Tara Hatherly titled Youth Cabinet Helping Improve Financial Literacy (see page 8). See also here. The article is all about the organization Toronto Youth Cabinet‘s (TYC) who met with the Education Minister on November 1 to petition  “to have a clearly defined financial literacy component added to Ontario’s  Grade 10 career studies course”. Prakash Amarasooriya, who is representing the TYC in this initiative, believes that teachers also require training “to deliver that material in a competent and confident way.”

From the TYC’s web site: “Established in 1998 by Toronto City Council, The Toronto Youth Cabinet is the official youth advisory body to the City of Toronto. The Toronto Youth Cabinet (TYC) is a youth-led advocacy group that promotes youth participation in civic affairs.

The TYC advocates on youth issues with various youth organizations across the city, and promotes youth involvement in policy development. TYC membership is open to youth between the ages of 13 and 24 who live, work, or learn in the City of Toronto.”

The Ministry tweeted …
