Support young people in Exeter to gain new skills

Posted by: , Posted on: - Categories: South West England

group of people working at a computerWe’re looking for volunteers to support an exciting new community initiative in Exeter. Residents at YMCA Exeter will be running a pop-up shop and café in Exeter city centre this Christmas. Ahead of their big opening we’ll be running a workshop around financial planning and awareness.

The workshop will help YMCA residents to gain valuable financial skills around setting prices, setting targets and personal budgeting. This will be an important step in preparing the YMCA for the opening of their pop-up shop in December and learning how to run an enterprise.

All workshop materials will be provided. We’re looking for enthusiastic volunteers to talk to a small group of young people about financial decision-making and support them through the workshop exercises. You don’t need any specific financial expertise – we’ll be dealing with simple price setting and goal exercises…but if you do happen to have experience in this area we’d love to have you on board!
