One of the essential goals in the area of financial education is to promote financial competence on the part of young people and young adults.
Besides the communication of knowledge to school students, focus is given to young people outside of schools and those threatened by social exclusion.
We catch the young people and young adults where they are: playing football, in the Children’s Village, studying in the café. The young people do not have to come to the bank because the bank comes to them. The first workshops were jointly implemented with SOS Children’s Village and Caritas – partially directly in the football cages of the Cage League.
The contents also deal with the everyday life of young people: Are 0-Euro mobile phones really free of charge? What traps lurk behind online shopping and how do I recognise fake shops? How do I plan my personal budget and what errors must I avoid when handling money?
Interactive games, quiz questions and discussion rounds make for a youth-appropriate communication of the topics.
The high demand on the part of NGOs clearly shows that UniCredit Bank Austria have addressed an important topic here.
