At the PMG Charitable Trust we’re on a mission to build better financial futures for young New Zealanders. We know talking about money matters can feel ‘taboo/tapu’, and for some young people, confusing and boring.
Yet it’s a fundamental skill we all need in life.
That’s why, in conjunction with our good friends at Life Education Trust NZ, we have developed PMG Flip.
PMG Flip is an interactive, infotainment-styled online financial literacy tool, which aims to help young people grasp the fundamental principles of money management in an engaging way.
Designed with 14- and 15-year-olds (Year 10) in mind, it has also been successfully used by older and younger age groups.
Four modules, covering key financial literacy concepts
Using short (2.5 mins) videos, young actors portray money management scenarios across the four.
Each video is followed by a short (4 – 6 minute) quiz to reiterate understand and stimulate debate.
Videos aim to bring a light-headed and humourous approach to the basics of money management.
