GOAL Youth Workshop Series

The Grassroots Organizing and Leadership (GOAL) Youth Capacity Building Workshop Series was developed in 2007 by youth-led organizations, funders and other partners to provide access to learning opportunities to enhance the work of young people, artists and youth-led groups. Through different strategies and in different spaces, young people are working to make change and to have an impact on communities across the city of Toronto. To take this passion and commitment and channel it into a project, individuals or organizations require training, tools and supports that are not always available to emerging, youth-led groups. These free sessions provide and accessible safe learning space for young people to ask questions, receive support, and access the resources that matter to them.

Title: Financial Management 101

Are you running a community project or involved with a larger organization? Already an ace at event management, social media, or youth engagement, but run in the other direction when you have to deal with money? Want to know how to manage grant funding when it affects your taxes?

As artists and community planners we are fiercely dedicated to mastering our creative practice which sometimes tends to leave us putting our administrative and financial organization on the back burner. In this workshop we will look at how to budget, keep track of your finances and what records you should be keeping for taxes. We will also look at what you need to claim for your taxes, which forms you need to fill out, and understanding how different sources of income (like receiving a grant) can impact your taxes.

Participants will also get hands-on time with Microsoft Excel spreadsheets and Google Sheets, supported by our expert facilitators who will show you how to get the most out of these powerful financial management tools!
