From empowering young people to feel confident and start talking openly about money to providing high-quality training and crucial support systems; Money for Life equips 16-25 year olds across the UK with the knowledge, life skills and provision needed to manage their money.
The Money Masterclasses is a one day or 4 Module Programme:

The Money Masterclass has been co-designed by young people and is delivered by peer educators, called Money Champions, alongside youth workers. The Money Champions are young people chosen by you and trained by us to support in the delivery of this programme. Champions will receive the necessary tools to deliver the money management training alongside their youth workers and support other young people to develop and lead their own community projects.
