“PARAYON (MYBNK) TRAININGS”: Our New Project on Financial Literacy for Young People Has Started

As FODER, we continue our efforts on raising the young people’s awareness on financial literacy with our new project that is supported by JP Morgan.

For the project, in 2007, Foder’s Project Team visited Mybnk, an award-winning non-governmental organization established to support young entrepreneurship and to help young people between the ages of 11 and 25 to manage their money, and got the Money Works, Money Twist, Unidosh trainings in theoretical and practical way; and they finished their studies to adapt these modules to Turkey.
The name of the new project is Parayön, but the names of the modules are identified as Paragram, Parameter and Parayol.

These trainings, aiming to increase the effect on young people’s learning about these subjects by providing them with enjoyable interactive, entertaining and learning programs that can speak the young people’s language, last week started in Rüştü Akın Vocational and Technical Anatolian High School. With the help of Paragram and Parameter training modules, 950 students were approached and financial literacy trainings were provided.
Within the scope of Parayön Project, which includes trainings, which will be given to different socio-economic groups with widespread learning methodology, aim to reach 6800 young people in order to raise the awareness and consciousness level on financial literacy, the “Training of Trainers” was held on 7-8-9 October 2015.
