Matched Savings for Youth

Do you want to save for school or need money for textbooks? Maybe you need to buy tools for work or want to start your own business?

Matched Savings for Youth will teach you how to save and manage your money during 2-hour evening workshops, twice a month, for 9 months. Momentum will match the money you save 4:1, which you can spend on tuition, textbooks, a laptop for school, tools for work, RESP, RDSP, or starting your own business. If you save the maximum $50/month for 9 months, you will have $450 of your own funds and $1,800 of Momentum’s funds. That’s a combined savings of $2,250 towards your future!

If you are over the ages of 16-24, our Matched Savings for Adults programs may be for you!

Matched Savings Program Success

“I’m grateful that this program exists. I have learned so much and have met many wonderful people, in person and online. As a young adult that did not have much experience with managing money in the beginning, I can say that after finishing this program that I am very confident in managing money now than I did before.”

“This program has been so rewarding to me and my future. It feels really good to have started saving money on my own terms and putting it towards my education- which I greatly value. Thank you Momentum!”

“Prior to being a part of this program, I had little to no knowledge of financial education on how to manage my savings, taxes, credit, etc. However, now that I have completed the program, I feel that I am able to manage my financial well-being to a great extent than before.”
