The Money Masterclasses is a one day or 4 Module Programme:
- Module 1: You and Your Money
- Module 2: Surviving ‘til Pay Day
- Module 3: Independence Day
- Module 4: Your Money Talks
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.
