Money money money: financial literacy online
A new website gives young people the essential basics of managing their money.The site, www.mny-mny-mny.com, is based on the Citizenship Foundation's popular guides to personal finance for young people.
Alongside this, an entertaining game – 'Who wants to be a student anyway?' – starts drawing links between personal finance and wider public issues.
On behalf of three contestants, the player must answer questions on topics to do with money. During the course of the game they are given the opportunity to link back to further information.
The Citizenship Foundation has teamed up with three other sites popular with young people, providing a range of information and advice: Yahoo! Student Zone; TheSite.org; and NewStudent.org. The project has been generously supported by Deutsche Bank.
