FREE Financial Literacy Information Session for VoRTCS Families!

We have another amazing opportunity for your tutoring family members! VoRTCS is looking at partnering with a charity, I am a Boat Person & Westpac Bank to provide a free financial literacy session for our VoRTCS refugees.
What will VoRTCS family members learn?

The topics which will be covered in the Financial Literacy information session are:
  • The banking system in Australia
  • Bank accounts (including credit cards)
  • Working in Australia
  • Superannuation
  • Tax
  • Renting
  • Budgeting
This completely free session will be an extremely valuable source of financial education and awareness for our VoRTCS families. The session is expected to run for approximately 2 hours (duration is dependent on the engagement of participants) and we are hoping to run the session sometime in August. The date and location for this session is yet to be confirmed pending interest. If there is plenty of interest, we may be able to run several sessions (for e.g. one session in a central location, one in Northern area, one in Southern area). There are no requirements to be a Westpac customer nor any other banking customer and participants will not be sold any products.

So what do VoRTCS family members need?
