Our work – Young Adults

Providing expert-led and accredited financial education workshops for 16-25 year olds in non-mainstream education and via UK youth organisations – Ideal for independent living and work programmes

Our expert-led programmes aim to give young adults in vulnerable circumstances 'survival' money skills and knowledge that they can implement immediately in their transition into independent living.

These financial education workshops focus on debt prioritisation, money management and digital finance skills. Delivered through councils, charities and non-mainstream education institutions, we help those often not in employment, education or training or leaving care, detoxify their relationship with money.

Every £1 spent on MyBnk’s young adult programmes creates £4.47 in social value and the impact increases as time goes on. Case studies available here.

We also provide a range of programmes for school ages and several home learning products.
