About the project:
Learning how to take care of money at a young age can be crucial in ensuring good finances later in life. By implementing the two-phase project "Money does not grow on trees'' under Erasmus+ program, we want to contribute to financial literacy in society by educating young people in their finances.
The first phase is the Partnership building activity or PBA. It is targeted for teachers, organization representatives, youth workers or anyone that has knowledge of financial literacy and would like to share his/her knowledge with others. Together we prepared the program for the second phase - Training Course (TC) for youth to show young people how to deal with their financial affairs.
