In this initiative, the ECCB has partnered with other financial institutions and the Ministries of Finance and Education within
the Eastern Caribbean Currency Union to provide support systems for the youth to help prepare them for life and work.
Within the two key areas of (i) financial education and (ii) social skills development, the programme seeks to develop the
students’ understanding of everyday financial and economic issues. It also focuses on other subject areas important to their
overall development by means of interactive discussions and activities.
The programme began in 2007 with the adoption of Grade 4 classes in the eight member countries and has expanded to
include students in Grades 5 and 6.
