The Youth Empowerment Series is a mentoring session with the Chairman of First Bank of Nigeria Limited, Mrs Ibukun Awosika aimed at children and youths aged between 10 and 24 years. The sessions seek to teach the audience on modern day principles of savings, investment and wealth creation. Focusing on the crucial topics, does this generation want to be cool or rich? On the day, the attendees are split based on their age group (10 -15 years and 16 -24 years) for ease of communication, understanding and learning purposes.
At its maiden edition, young people were taught about early savings and wealth creation through investing in stocks, saving their pocket money, exploiting their entrepreneurial ideas etc. This year’s session promises to be bigger and better as we intend to continue these discussions on financial literacy, mental and emotional wellbeing, social media including special guest artiste performances.
