THE HANGMAN CHALLENGE WORKSHOP
Your First Job!
Teens can begin to work from the age of 14 in some states. Unfortunately, that's a prime age for coercion.
Prepare your students for work. Help them know their rights, make better choices, save money and strive for success. Our workshops empower your students with these topics:
Minimum Wages and Conditions
Leave and Loadings
Resumes and Applications
Unions, TFNs and Superannuation
Full Time, Part Time and Casual
Where to Find Help
THE HOT SEAT CHALLENGE WORKSHOP
Your First Taxes
Most teens have to file their first tax returns before they leave high school, and before they are a legal adult. Your school can no longer provide your students with their TFNs, and doesn't have the resources to help them file their first return. They are on their own.
Tax isn't easy, and it's not going away. Get them prepared with these topics:
Applying for and using a TFN
Protecting your Identity
Filing Your First Return
Finding an Accountant
Payslips and PAYG Summaries
Tax Refunds and Assessments
Deductions and Saving Money
THE DOUBLE JEOPARDY CHALLENGE WORKSHOP
Financial Self Management
'Adulting' isn't intuitive. It requires our active learning to avoid our undoing. Who taught you about the following topics?
How to make and maintain a budget
Understanding and buying insurance
Banking and Investing
