Citi Foundation-SMU Financial Literacy Program for Young Adults
Leading the field of financial literacy to educate and empower young adults
Launched in April 2012 by Citi Singapore and Singapore Management University with the support of the Citi Foundation, the Citi Foundation-SMU Financial Literacy Program for Young Adults is Singapore's first structured financial literacy program for young adults.
Through workshops, lectures, course curriculum and game-based carnivals, the program seeks to equip young adults between the ages of 15 and 30 with essential personal finance knowledge and skills applicable to their life stage to give them a firm foundation in managing their money and a financial head-start early in their lives.
Citi Foundation-SMU Financial Literacy Program for Young Adults’ unique peer-to-peer pedagogical model enhances the delivery, outreach and continuity of financial literacy concepts to youths in Singapore.
After participating in the program, beneficiaries observed increased awareness of financial concepts and change in money management behaviour.
