Earn, Save, Learn.. Global Money Week 2021

It’s Global Money Week this week, an annual awareness-raising campaign on the importance of ensuring that from an early age, young people are financially aware and can acquire the skills to achieve financial wellbeing.

We are delighted to see the fantastic initiatives taking place all across the world for a cause we are so devoted to. At MyPocketSkill, we are so aware of what’s lacking in financial education for young people in the UK and are working hard to help the UK government find innovative ways to test what works in teaching young people about money. Our “Earn, Save, Learn” programme enables teens to earn money, acquire skills and work towards set savings goals.

The theme for this year’s campaign is “Take care of yourself, take care of your money”. Since starting in 2012, the Campaign has reached over 40 million children and youth in 175 countries worldwide.

So, how has MyPocketSkill encouraged young people to “Take care of yourself, take care of your money”? We spoke to Anna, 16 from Tonbridge to find out.

“MyPocketSkill has taught me that to earn money you have to work hard and be motivated. MyPocketSkill has made this easier by inspiring me to earn money whilst having a lot of fun using skills that I love. One of the key factors MyPocketSkill has taught me is to be more financially aware. They have helped me achieve this by enabling me to set a savings goal that I work towards. An example of learning to be more financially aware is the savings spreadsheet I have made, where I log my lesson earnings and at the end of the month I see how much I have saved overall and have an idea of how close I am to achieving my goal. Without MyPocketSkill, I wouldn’t have had the opportunity to learn about managing money wisely.”
