NYA and Barclays’ Money Skills project benefits over 100,000 young people.

 

The Barclays Money Skills ‘champions’ project has supported over 100,000 young people to build money management skills, knowledge and confidence and is continuing to do so with a legacy project focused on employability.
When the project ended in June 2014, 5,284 young people had increased their own financial capability and were up-skilled to share this vital information with 121,000 of their peers. Organisations associated with the ‘champions’ programme also recruited 238 youth organisations and trained 537 support workers to help build knowledge and peer-education skills of the young people they work with. Over 750 Barclays volunteers were also engaged to support the delivery of sessions on budgeting, saving, loans and credit.
Building on the success of the ‘champions’ programme, the National Youth Agency will continue to partner with Barclays to help the next generation achieve their ambitions as part of Barclays’ 5 Million Young Futures commitment.
