NYA has been awarded support from the Money Advice Service’s What Works Fund to improve the financial know-how of young people taking their first steps on the career ladder.
NYA is developing free, interactive sessions and workshops for young people who are embarking on training or an apprenticeship, to help them understand more about budgets, spending and debt. Many of these will be peer-led and delivered by young people.
Paul Miller, CEO at the National Youth Agency said, “NYA is delighted to receive support from the What Works Fund. Young people face financial challenges when they reach key transitions in their lives – and young people who were not in education, employment or training and are embarking on an apprenticeship, as they are in our project, face even more challenges”.
