BANGKOK (NNT) – A new program is planned to promote essential financial skills among younger people, providing a foundation for financial management skills for their daily lives and future investments.
The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and the Department of Juvenile Observation and Protection (DJOP) have agreed to launched a program promoting essential financial skills for youths and children.
A Memorandum of Understanding on this campaign was agreed to by the SEC Secretary General Ruenvadee Suwanmongkol, and the DJOP Director General Pol Lt Col Wannapong Kotcharag in a video conference.
The program, to be developed with the cooperation of the SEC and DJOP, is aimed at promoting essential financial skills for youths and children, such as a financial health assessment, personal income and expense logging, and financial goal setting.
These skills will be passed on to participants via a group of speakers, who will provide theoretical lectures and hands-on workshops.
Personnel from the DJOP, including the Welfare Committee for Juvenile Detention Centers and those working in the community justice network will serve as the speakers.
The DJOP hopes the experience of the personnel working closely with children and youths will allow for an effective and successful program. It also aims to provide the training through local DJOP-operated child and youth training centers across the country.
