Empowering the Future: Financial Literacy Programs for Young People in Croatia and Europe

Financial literacy is an essential skill that young people must possess to succeed in the business world. To promote financial awareness among young people, the Croatian Association of Banks (HUB) and the European Investment Bank (EIB) have collaborated to organize a rich program of workshops and educational content during World Money Week from March 18 to 24 this year.

The program, titled “Finance for New Generations,” will target young entrepreneurs, teachers, and high school students. The program aims to enhance financial literacy among young people and motivate them to pursue successful careers in the business world. The education program will reach approximately 500 professors and 17,000 students over two years. A digital manual called “My Money, My Job, My Future” will be used for education. Workshops and educational content will be conducted by Štedopis, led by Marina Ralašić, to promote financial awareness.

Štedopis is an organization dedicated to teaching young people about money management and entrepreneurship. They have formulated various publications, conducted research, and executed projects to enhance financial literacy among children and youth. They are currently developing new content for secondary schools, consisting of a textbook for students and a manual for teachers called “My Money, My Job, My Future.” The new online textbook will cover essential topics like personal finance, economics, career development, and sustainable consumption. Additionally, Štedopis will organize workshops and competitions to engage high school students and teachers in promoting financial awareness.

Given the changing financial habits among teenagers, these programs play a crucial role in educating young people about responsible money management and savings, preparing them for a financially secure future.
