Act On It

Moneybags

We are Act On It. We use drama to have fun and engage hard-to-reach groups, helping them back into education. We support educational community projects that lead to greater confidence, raised aspirations and better lives.

Thank you for supporting our Moneybags initiative, a drama project using role- play scenarios to explore, develop and realise money management strategies. We will work with disadvantaged 14 to 16 year-olds, who have been excluded from school. The young people taking part will gain a greater understanding of how to budget, save and handle money in their day-to-day lives.

The participants will then create a role-play 'book' to share what they have learned with other groups. Containing hints, photos and information on money management, the book will be self published on Amazon and will help even more people to gain financial management skills.
