IFSA Youth Empowerment Program (YEP)

In a world where financial literacy is increasingly recognized as a cornerstone for sound decision-making and personal growth, IFSA proudly presents the Youth Empowerment Program (YEP). As part of our ongoing commitment to nurturing future generations, YEP stands as a beacon of knowledge and empowerment, specifically designed to demystify the complexities of personal finance for young minds.


YEP envisions a world where children and adolescents, regardless of their background, possess the knowledge and skills to navigate the financial landscape with confidence and acumen. By introducing essential concepts of personal finance early in life, we aim to lay a robust foundation that supports informed financial decisions, promotes economic stability, and fosters a lifetime of financial well-being.

Community Impact

The initial launch of YEP in the APAC region, notably led by the pioneering efforts of IFSA BITS Pilani, marked the beginning of a transformative journey. This groundbreaking initiative has since ignited a global movement within the IFSA Network, inspiring chapters worldwide to take up the mantle and spread the message of financial literacy.

Our collaboration with local schools and community organizations like Pehchaan The Street School has allowed us to reach out directly to the youth, making a tangible difference in their lives. These partnerships have been instrumental in breaking down barriers to education and ensuring that financial literacy is accessible to all.

Our Approach

The Youth Empowerment Program is more than just a curriculum; it’s a movement towards creating a financially literate and empowered generation. Through interactive learning sessions and hands-on activities, YEP engages students in a journey through the basics of financial literacy, including budgeting, saving, investing, and financial planning.

Our methodology is designed to be engaging, relatable, and, most importantly, impactful. By using real-life scenarios and practical exercises, we ensure that the concepts taught are not only understood but also retained and applied. Our approach fosters an environment where questions are encouraged, and learning is celebrated.
