On February 23rd, 2013 at the Oscar Peterson Hall, we presented our third annual Financial Literacy Talent Show for the youth in the Greater Montreal area.
This event got more youth and their families to be acquainted with our program which helps them become more financially responsible by improving their financial literacy skills.
The contest took place during Black History Month and allowed up to 50 young artists from the visible minority communities to demonstrate their creativity and develop a sense of belonging.
The Carrefour jeunesse emploi de Côte-des-Neiges and Jamaican Canadian Community Women’s League of Montreal Inc. would like to congratulate and thank all participants of the MonnaieMoney 2013 youth Talent Show.
We want to congratulate everyone who participated and wish them all the best with their artistic endeavors and future projects.
