MyBnk brings money knowledge power to the National Citizens Service!

This summer….financial education is coming to the National Citizens Service!

Thousands of young people across England are set for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, building skills for work and life, whilst taking on new challenges and meeting new friends.

Together with MyBnk, 2,300 young people in 18 locations will gain leadership, teamwork and communication skills and put these into practice running their own social action project in their local communities.

The scheme will run for 6 weeks during July and August 2013. We’ll be teaming up with the Cabinet Office, Reed in Partnership, the Football League Trust

The NCS is a flagship Government initiative which aims to promote a more cohesive, responsible and engaged society by bringing young people from different backgrounds together to make a difference in their communities.

What’s occurring?

We’ll be bringing flagship workshops from Money Twist, connecting the macro and the micro, arming 15 to 17 year olds with personal finance skills like budgeting and discovering what the heck the government does with your money.

With My Money and My Choices, we’ll be demystifying tax, exploring youth employment rights, examining career choices, discovering the history of money, prioritising needs v wants and learning how and why to save.
