Economic Empowerment

We believe in women’s ability to achieve economic empowerment. YWCA Moncton provides women with the opportunity to gain skills and knowledge to increase economic independence through: adult education, employability services, and financial literacy training.
 

Financial Literacy

​Financial Literacy Training is an ongoing program designed to build women financial skills and knowledge while raising their awareness and offering support.

Our program uses a practical, everyday approach to making the most of money. Based on the SEDI (Social Enterprise Development Innovation) curriculum, this program walks participants through the topics of: Exploring our Relationship with Money, Budgeting, Savings, Banking, Consumerism, Credit / credit Cards, Debt, Credit Bureau/Credit Scores, and Investing Basics.

For more information on this support group, please contact Karen Geraghty at (506) 855-4349 or info@ywcamoncton.com.

Employability Services

Public Internet access for job search and labor market research is available by appointment.
 

Microloans

​The December 6th Fund is a violence-prevention initiative providing women with interest-free micro-loans to assist them in leaving abusive relationships. Loans can be used to pay rent, past due electricity bills, purchase furniture, cover moving costs, etc.

To learn more about the conditions for participation, or to set up an appointment for an application and intake interview, please contact Heather Richards (855-4349 hrichards@ywcamoncton.com).
