Fit for Life

Age range:

14 - 16 years

“Fit for Life” is an educational programme aimed at students aged 14 to 16, specifically pupils in the 5th year of “secondaire général” and pupils in the 4th year of “secondaire classique”. This programme has been implemented in Luxembourg since the beginning of the 2008/2009 school year. It consists of 6 didactic units exploring personal financial, educational and career options for pupils based on their skills, interests and values.

The 6 lessons are taught in class by a volunteer from the business world.

Young people learn basic economic and business concepts, explore their interests, skills and career options, and learn the main principles of finance. Professional volunteers who visit the classrooms serve as role models. Through a variety of hands-on activities, young people can better understand the relationship between what they learn in school and how they will successfully participate in the economy of the world they live in.

A resource kit is provided containing detailed plans for each activity, informative activity booklets for young people and additional learning materials to make the experience a success for young people, teachers and external volunteers. The aim of the programme is to help young people gain a better understanding of the economic life of the world in which they live, and to prepare them for success in their studies and working life.
