Will you support our financial literacy work with local young people?
Our financial literacy partnership with staff and students at Epsom & Ewell High School begins next month. As we reported earlier, Year 12 students on the 6-week programme will cover issues every adult must learn to manage (see end of item).
Last week our money and debt project colleague Marian helped prepare the EEHS staff taking part. She was impressed by the enthusiasm and commitment of everyone involved:
“This time next year most of the students will be studying hard but also thinking about the next stage of their lives. Now is a good time for them to see more of how the world manages money in the matters we all have to deal with.
“Everyone involved in the project believes it’s really worthwhile and is keen to get started. The frightening cost of living crisis means it’s more important than ever for young people to feel confident about how money works. At Citizens Advice we see the problems people face if they can’t budget or manage money efficiently.”
Will you help us extend this long-term investment in local young people?
The Ruxley Foundation and Surrey County Councillors, Steve McCormick and Bernie Muir are generous supporters of our Financial Literacy Project at EEHS. We would love to extend it to other local schools so that more young people can benefit and are inviting local businesses and others to sponsor the project.
