Black History Studies in association with Rites of Passage Enterprise presents


Black Gold: A Financial Literacy Programme
for Young People


starting Saturday 17th January 2015





Financial skills are vital for young people as they make the transition into adulthood. The ability to manage their money is essential in allowing them to take control of their lives.


A 2012 Panelbase survey conducted by pfeg and the National Children's Bureau found that 43% of seven to sixteen-year-olds worried about money, while nearly one in eight, 12%, had borrowed money that they could not afford to repay.


This course aims to help young people develop and improve their knowledge of Black History and gain financial skills at the same time using examples from our past and present. This course will teach young people how to make wise money management decisions now and in the future.


The course will run from 12.45pm to 2pm for 5 weeks from Saturday 17th January 2015 to Saturday 14th February 2015 at West Green Learning Centre, West Green Road, Tottenham, London, N15 3QR. Nearest Tube is Seven Sisters (Victoria Line) or Turnpike Lane (Piccadilly Line). Buses 41, 341, 67 and W4 pass nearby the entrance.


This course is aimed at young people aged 11-16 years of age. Your child must attend all five sessions and be willing to participate in this interactive session.
