Do you know any children? Do you want to see them grow up with the ability to make good financial decisions? So do we! We believe that teaching young people to manage their money well is vitally important – which is why we want to tell you about My Money Week.
My Money Week is a national activity week for primary and secondary schools, brought to you by the Personal Finance Education Group. It provides a fantastic opportunity for young people to gain the skills, knowledge and confidence in money matters to thrive in our society. This year, it's taking place from 12 to 18 June.
Maybe you read our email a few weeks ago about our CAP Money Kids and Youth resources? This would be the perfect opportunity to make the most of running these courses in your local school, or asking someone to run them for you.
Everyone’s going to be talking about money in schools that week, so why not use this opportunity to share our fun, practical and engaging church-run course with the young people in your community?
Martin Lewis, one of CAP’s biggest fans, supports My Money Week. He says, ‘Teaching our young people about how money works is crucial to enable them to have a role in our competitive consumer economy, both understanding how it works from a company’s perspective but crucially being a good consumer too – because being good with money can make your life easier, and being bad impacts far more than people think.’
How will you get involved?
