What is MyBnk?
Together with young people, we have created innovative, high impact and high energy workshops on topics such as saving, budgeting, public finance, social enterprise and start-up entrepreneurship. We also formed the first ever independent online and in-school youth-led saving and lending banking scheme, MyBnk-in-a-Box.
MyBnk’s experts deliver practical enterprise experiences by giving young people access to interest-free loans and market places to set up their own initiatives. We also deliver the face-to-face side of the Money Advice Service and provide financial literacy and social enterprise education with the National Citizens Service.
Young people are at the heart of everything we do, and we take a holistic approach to how to teach, focussing on quality and impact and catering for audio, visual and kinaesthetic learners. Our team is made up of teachers, youth workers and people who have worked in the financial sector.Since 2007, we have helped over 135,000 young people in more than 700 schools and youth organisations learn to manage money and start their own enterprises. Our programmes are now being replicated nationally and internationally.
