The Way Youth Zone Wolverhampton is launching a 10 week money management programme, offering 1:1 mentoring support to young people who need it.

The ATM Programme Funded by DCMS and Nesta, the aim of the ATM programme is to scale proven social action programmes that improve money management skills and reduce debt for individuals and families in England with a focus on young people aged 14-25 and/or families considered ‘just about managing’. Volunteer mentors, must be 21 years or over and be passionate and committed to providing effective and reliable 1:1 money management mentoring support over a 10-week period.

Each mentoring session will last approximately 1 hour and it is expected that the programme will help young people to make successful transitions into adulthood by:
·         raising their resilience, self-esteem & confidence to shape their financial future
·         equip them to make more informed financial decisions
·         helping them develop the basic financial/life skills required for successful independent living
