What is MyBnk?
MyBnk is an award-winning UK charity that teaches young people how to manage their money and set up their own enterprise. We design and deliver programmes for 11-25 year olds in schools and youth organisations.
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 formed the first ever independent online and in-school youth-led saving and lending banking scheme, MyBnk-in-a-Box.
Our 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.
Our team is made up of teachers, youth workers and people who have worked in the financial sector.
Since 2007, we have helped over 125,000 young people in more than 650 schools and youth organisations learn to manage money and start their own enterprises. Our programmes are now being replicated nationally and internationally.
