For young people understanding and being able to debate current affairs can also improve career prospects and confidence. And yet broadsheets and financial press can be daunting at first sight, perhaps explaining why younger people are less likely to pick up a copy of the newspaper, with just 5% being made up of 15-24 year olds.1
Developed by Deutsche Bank’s Finance division and now delivered in partnership with Volunteering Matters, Deutsche Bank volunteers meet small groups of 16-18 year olds from schools across London and Birmingham on a monthly basis to discuss and debate current affairs and economics issues found in the Financial Times. Free subscriptions to FT.com are supplied by the Financial Times to the students taking part in the programme.
