MyBnk has joined a worldwide alliance of 132 countries and seven million young people to raise awareness of financial education for young people – it’s Global Money Week 2017!
The theme for this year: “Learn. Save. Earn.”
From 27th March to 2nd April, in association with Children and Youth Finance International, we will be reaching thousands of 7-25 year old in money master classes and marketplace enterprise loan challenges across the UK and beyond. Our Education Officers and members of the Youth Advisory Panel are also taking part in special events at the London Stock Exchange and with the Money Advice Service (MAS) and partners in Africa.
- Digital skills is costing the UK MILLIONS. See how we are integrating them within financial education programmes for young people in our guest blog on the Financial Capability Strategy website.
- We visited the Magic Circle’s HQ for the Money Advice Service’s Children & their Financial Futures Conference where the personal finance body revealed worrying and encouraging research and former Business Secretary Sir Vince Cable reminded us of the stakes on achieving financial literacy.
In addition, MyBnk has just published a new Annual Report and a ‘Money Quiz’ free resource for teachers and youth workers. Be sure to also keep an eye and ear out for us on BBC Radio 1 at 9pm Wednesday 29th March and the MAS blog.
