Money Minds lessons are delivered by Yorkshire Building Society colleagues as part of their award-winning corporate volunteering scheme, which allocates each employee 31 hours’ paid leave every year to carry out volunteering in local communities.
There are 10 different topics to choose from, adapted to each key stage. Young children can learn about how to keep money safe and budgeting and older students can learn about buying a house and pensions.
More than 25,000 pupils across the UK have now received a Money Minds lesson since the programme launched in 2015.
