Financial education for local youth on the cards

Local youth is invited to attend the African Financial Inclusion Network's inaugural Enriching Conversations - Youth Financial Wellness Forum in Newtown, Johannesburg.

The African Financial Inclusion Network (AFIN) is hosting their inaugural Enriching Conversations – Youth Financial Wellness Forum.

The event marks the beginning of a 12-month financial education programme for the youth who are starting their careers. AFIN provides strategic advisory for policies, programmes and initiatives that contribute to the greater financial inclusion of consumers and organisations on the continent.

AFIN is hosting this event with its partner, the Banking Association of South Africa, on 1 December at the Joburg Auto City in Carr Street, Newtown.

Zviko Mudimu, managing director at AFIN, said this forum will provide a platform for youth in Gauteng who are starting with their different careers.

Mudimu said the focus will be mostly on learnerships, internships and other youth development programmes to help the youth start building knowledge for their future financial lives. “It is the beginning of a year-long programme designed by AFIN to provide access to consumer financial education, inclusive financial products and ongoing evaluation of the effectiveness of the programme to encourage positive financial behaviour in young people.

“Through this initiative, AFIN provides an opportunity for the youth to share their financial needs and challenges and for financial institutions to create inclusive products that serve them better.”

Mudimu has invited interested organisations to apply to be part of the year-long programme that starts with the forum. The cost to attend the forum is R250 per person or up to R5 000 per organisation.
