​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.

What CAP Money Youth Teaches

The CAP Money Youth Session aims to teach:
  1. How bad money management and being in debt can mess up your life
  2. The importance of building a budget and sticking to it
  3. Techniques to balance a budget
  4. Why living on cash is better than using cards all of the time

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.

'Going through income and expenditure was very useful. It was thought provoking. I think it is important for our general well-being to learn about these things and we don't do money management in school.'
