Saving Generation Y
SavY aims to promote good financial habits in all youth, regardless of their background or aspirations in life. We believe that good financial habits should be promoted alongside other similar life skills currently taught in schools.
To do this, we run FREE, hour-long financial literacy workshops in secondary schools - the workshops are fun and interactive as they are presented by university students. SavY then aims to provide continuing support to the students that take part in our workshops through our website and our facebook page. We hope that access to such information will help change spending behaviour and encourage better decision making.
In 2014, our trained facilitators (all of whom are current university students) undertook over 290 workshops in approximately 50 different high schools!
