Each One Teach One

Financial education has become an increasingly important part of life. That is why we are proud to have our staff sharing their skills with our members through Each One Teach One Workshops.

These workshops are conducted by volunteers from our staff here at East Coast Credit Union. They help our members gain insight into their own finances that they can use throughout their lives. Through these workshops we hope to empower our members to make financial decisions that can positively impact their future.

Here are some of the workshops we have provided in the past. Watch for more coming near you! Contact us at eastcoast@creditu.ca to find out more.
