Financial Literacy

Boot Camp

Join our camps this summer to ensure a better and more financially stable future.


Financial Literacy Boot Camps

The importance of financial education is gaining momentum around the world!

MONEYSMART is an experiential learning 2-day boot camp that can help young people create wealth by thinking differently. Three camps will be organized in the months of June and July across Lebanon: Beirut, Saida, Zahle.

MONEYSMART program is designed to empower the youth with financial knowledge and techniques to become “Money Smart” with the aim to help them achieve financial freedom early in life and thus become self-reliant, productive members of society.


MONEYSMART, designed by Eventa and brought to you by Byblos Bank, is a new program in the Middle East promoting financial literacy to young people who are about to enter the real world and find themselves challenged due to the little knowledge they have about management of their finances and future financial planning.
Buying a new car, taking a loan for the first time, planning to start a new business, are just a few of the challenges that young people face as they enter adult life. Unfortunately very little is done at school and university level to prepare them for this critical phase in life.

MONEYSMART’s objective is to educate young people, 20-30 years old, across Lebanon about financial literacy by helping them:

  • Become money smart, and adopt a wealth creation mindset.
  • Identify their resources and understand how to manage them.
  • Understand how to leverage financial and non-financial resources to create wealth.

The boot camp is loaded with information, hands-on activities, group discussions and games through which financial literacy concepts are demonstrated and communicated.

What will you learn?

Byblos Bank
Byblos Bank established its Financial Literacy Program in 2015 in order to raise awareness and empower people to take charge of their financial futures. Initiatives that fall under this banner are designed to familiarize fellow Lebanese citizens with basic economic and financial terms and concepts that have so much effect on their personal finances and therefore on their daily lives. The Program encompasses several initiatives with high media visibility, notably the famous “Fakker Maliyan” broadcasted daily after the evening news bulletin at LBCI.
By enabling youth to better understand the financial impact of their decisions and thus shape up their financial destinies, we would also be providing them with the needed tools to make a positive change in Lebanon. The Financial Literacy MONEYSMART Boot Camps sponsored by Byblos Bank are aligned with this vision and will help youth throughout the country have more control over their own finances. This will surely allow them to become The Makers of their individual and national success.
