Five Enterprises Equipping Youth with Essential Financial Skills

The Department for Education Official Statistics currently pegs the average graduate salary in the UK at £38,500.

Yet, with living costs soaring, startlingly, nearly half (47%) of British individuals aged 18-35 have no savings whatsoever, as revealed by Gen Z insights firm Prograd.

This leaves a significant portion of the UK’s youth exposed to unforeseen financial strains.

Thankfully, a number of UK enterprises have stepped forward, committed to bolstering financial understanding among the youth, thereby rendering personal finance both approachable and engaging.

Here’s an overview:

  1. Prograd

Prograd is a financial literacy platform dedicated to guiding young professionals through the complex world of personal finance.

With an emphasis on practical advice and real job opportunities to help earn more money, Prograd’s platform has a whole host of resources tailored to the unique financial challenges faced by young people.

From saving for their first home or learning how to make money from home, the platform serves as a guide for those looking to make informed financial decisions early in their careers.

  1. Doshi

Doshi distinguishes itself with a unique blend of financial education and gamification.

Its compelling app introduces users to gamified learning ventures and contests, delving into essential financial concepts such as initiating savings accounts and the complexities involved in purchasing property.

Doshi’s aim is to unravel the complexities of financial education, rendering it accessible and enjoyable for people of all age groups, thereby setting the stage for financial autonomy.

  1. Your Juno

Aiming to bridge the financial literacy gender divide, Your Juno offers bespoke financial advice to women and non-binary folks.

Conceived by Margot and Alexia amidst the pandemic, Your Juno caters to the specific financial literacy demands of its audience across different life phases. The platform is crafted to instill financial acumen and confidence, empowering users to pursue their aspirations and bolster their fiscal health with a robust sense of independence and self-reliance.

  1. MoneyWhizz

Renowned for its comprehensive approach to financial education, MoneyWhizz targets the youth and educational institutions throughout the UK.

Through workshops, digital resources, and interactions with financial pundits, MoneyWhizz arms students with the essential skills to grasp and manage their finances adeptly. The platform spans a myriad of subjects, from elementary budgeting techniques to advanced investment strategies, all aimed at nurturing financial wisdom from an early age.

  1. FinLit

FinLit is on a crusade to redefine personal finance through technological innovation.

The platform presents an array of online courses and materials tailored to demystify financial principles for young adults. Be it mastering tax intricacies, deciphering credit scores, or retirement planning, FinLit’s user-friendly content and platform render financial education a liberating journey for the tech-savvy youth.

These five enterprises are leading the charge towards heightened financial literacy among the younger demographic.

Employing technology, inclusivity, and pioneering pedagogical approaches, they are not just educating but also motivating a new generation to seize the reins of their financial destinies.
