CAP Money Youth

In a society where so many young people are growing up without any direction on how to navigate their way through the important decisions about how to handle their money. CAP Money Youth is designed to change all of that. This practical and engaging workshop for 14–16 year olds, teaches young people how to identify income and expenditure, and how to build a balanced budget so that they can live within their means. This course is the first step towards giving our young people the tools they need to avoid the pitfalls of money management.

The multi-media session is an interactive mixture of presentation, DVD, case studies, exercises and activities to really engage young people with the content. Our interactive budget builder allows pupils to practice their new skills and see the impact of decisions about spending straight away.
