We’re pleased to announce that MyBnk has become a Financial Times Community Partner.
What does that mean?
FT funding is helping us reach 440 students with 46 hours of face-to-face financial education programmes in a specially designed project with the City of London Academy, Southwark.
Journalists and staff are also volunteering as enterprise mentors and helping co-deliver workshops.
With 11-14 year olds, we’ll build basic finance knowledge and help them engage with money in ways they’ve never done before. Money Twist sessions will tackle everything from the history of money and budgeting to needs and wants and ethical banking.
We’ll also be preparing 16-18 years olds for the financial pressures of independent university and collage life in specialised Uni Dosh workshops. In all-day sessions, Sixth Formers will master Student Finance, banking, costs and hear real life stories and create student action plans.
Lunch n learn
Staff got stuck into Money Marathon board games, shocked themselves with their spending habits and built saving plans.
Programmes will be delivered in May and June, we’ll let you know what happens!
