Junior Achievement and AXA Group launch global youth risk education programme
When levels of personal debt are at record highs, and securing a loan to finance further education, buy a home or start a business is increasingly difficult, the importance of making sound financial decisions and managing risk is ever more important. As the new generation prepares to enter an ever more complex and volatile world, it is necessary to provide students with the tools necessary to better understand the risks around them.
This year Junior Achievement and AXA Group introduce a new financial risk education initiative: Insure Your Success. In the first year, more than 90 AXA Group volunteers will work directly with students in Ireland, Japan, The Philippines, Portugal and Romania to teach them about ways to achieve greater financial stability and protection against life's unexpected events.
