The rate of financial literacy is very low and falling among young people.
Most students do not feel confident making simple financial decisions such as choosing a bank account.
This is despite governments here and internationally recognising young people as a critical cohort for education in financial literacy.
In contrast, young people entering the workforce have growing agency in financial decision making in an increasingly complex environment.
94% of 14 to 17 year old Australians want to know how to manage their money better.
The Money Mentor program is specifically designed to fill this gap.
