Our main goal is to instill an entrepreneurial spirit in children from a young age and develop their awareness of financial management, equipping them to become financially responsible members of society. We have partnered with Bank of Ireland to achieve this goal by delivering workshops in primary schools nationwide facilitated by their staff – trained volunteers through Bizworld Ireland. Since the partnership began in 2016, over 500 workshops have been delivered in schools across Ireland, engaging 40,000 children in 4th, 5th and 6th class.
Each county in Ireland has one youth coordinator from the Bank of Ireland who is responsible for running a BizWorld Ireland workshop and inspire and empower children to learn about money management, critical thinking and enterprise in a fun and creative way. The partnership program is called My First Business.
