About us

Launch Community Development Foundation (Launch Kelowna) provides strength-based financial education and mentorship in a small class setting. Trained Launch volunteers guide participants through classes sharing information so that participants can increase their skills, knowledge, ability and confidence to make effective decisions about their personal finances. Each of our programs begins with a discussion of assets. Focusing not only on financial assets but the personal and business connections, community resources, skills and abilities that we each draw on as we navigate through life.
Discussing personal finances can often make people feel uncomfortable, or judged for their decisions. By focusing on the whole person, and recognizing the unique skills and abilities we each have we build relationships of trust which lead to more impactful conversations with each participant.
