Developing financial management skills is an important part of adulthood.
To become financially capable, young people must gain knowledge and experience as well as having a good attitude towards money. Bold Leap ensures young people have access to the resources and experts that teach essential financial skills.
How We Help Young People to Become Financially Savvy
Our Bold Leap properties are fully furnished with each young person’s room equipped with a bed, wardrobe, chest of drawers, TV, and a desk with a chair. In the living area, you will find sofas, coffee tables, dining table and chairs, as well as a large TV. In the kitchen, our young people have access to all of the equipment they need including crockery, cutlery and utensils. Beyond the furniture, our homes are decorated to a high standard and kept clean and tidy. We want to create a safe and welcoming space where young people can interact, learn, and grow.
Many young people feel compelled to access secured cash when it becomes available at the age of 18. At this critical age when young people leave support, Bold Leap provides access to financial education and support to ensure individuals are aware of the risks of compulsive, excessive spending and other damaging financial actions.
Supported by an International Movement for Youth Financial Education
The need for developing financial capacity in young people continues to climb higher up on the national and international agenda. Internationally, more and more countries are participating in the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA), which measures financial literacy levels. Bold Leap is committed to delivering financial education to providelearning opportunities for young people that consider problem-solving skills in a real-life context.
