Visualizing the Problem

Our project focuses on the impact that financial illiteracy has on marginalized Albertan high school students, and the multiple barriers they can face when trying to improve their understanding in this area. Too many youths are living in poverty and aren’t accessing support, but at the same time, there are a wealth of resources available, as well as motivated individuals seeking to help. One challenge is the distribution of financial literacy resources that are welcoming, engaging, and relevant for marginalized youth and ultimately making youth aware of what’s available to them. Another challenge is distrust of organizations, financial institutions, and adults due to a lack of support and negative experiences that have resulted from situations like family abuse or neglect, addictions, and mental health conditions. And lastly, there is also a challenge due to the lack of diversity and acknowledgement of systemic issues in financial literacy resources for those in marginalized communities.
