EVERFI offers resources to schools, covering topics such as digital citizenship, STEM, financial literacy, and career readiness.
These programs are valued at over $1,000 per school and they are available to HCOS students at no cost – thanks to a partnership with the Vancouver Canucks! These are very popular. The activities are not too long, and you can decide which of the available activities is best for your students. They are ERAC-approved (Educational Resource Acquisition Consortium).

It’s really easy for students to get started- just follow these steps:

We can allow a parent or a teacher, either one, to set up their own students in the EVERFI site, with access to all the courses above. Please email Beth Johnson for information about how to do that. To access EVERI’s help and support centre, go to EVERI Help Centre.
