Financial Literacy Training the Trainers:
Giving Youth a Financial Head Start
10-11 October 2016

Workshop highlights:
  • Highly participatory
  • Packed with training examples and programmes easy to use with your students
  • Behaviour focused and 100% youth-centred
  • Specific to Cambodia teenagers and young adults
  • Empowering: your trainers learn to manage their own money to be able to train your students and practise training during the workshop
  • Free access to our online training database.
Does your university or learning centre provide academic knowledge to young adults but lack expertise in helping them manage their money? Do your students struggle resisting peer pressure and consumption appeal? Do they ask money from their already financially vulnerable families? Would you like to equip them with basic knowledge and skills to make the most of their first salary once they graduate? Would you like to offer practical programmes to your Alumni?

Course objective:
Participants learn how to better control expenses and debt and to save. They identify the challenges that youth face with money, especially behaviour, social pressure, family support, life decisions (study vs. work, equipment purchase …), ethics and scams. They analyse what methods would best empower their students. They can use training examples straight away once back to their office.
