Aflateen: Aflatoun and Teenagers
Tailored specifically for this time in life, the Aflateen programme empowers youth to question their identity and the world around them more. They explore concepts such as age, gender, nationality, ethnicity, socio-economic status and religion. Aflateen also includes the key Aflatoun theme of financial education.
It is crucial that youth understand money and the market that affects them more and more as they become consumers, workers and producers. After facilitated sessions looking at themes such as identity and finance, young people develop financial knowledge by incorporating practical activities, including savings clubs, enterprise creation, and community activities. Between 2011 and 2016, the Aflateen curriculum will be piloted and, ultimately, scaled in 50 countries.
