The 5 Stone Social and Financial Leadership

Program Objectives

The 5 Stone Social and Financial Leadership Program is implemented by the Teacher Academy Foundation in collaboration with Aflatoun International. The program aims to provide primary and secondary school students with financial literacy and social entrepreneurship knowledge and skills using active learning methods.


Teachers who apply to the project and complete the orientation training are expected to:

  • Implement the application tasks given for each educational theme in their classes

  • Attend "Mentor Meetings" for each educational theme, held for two hours on one evening, and share their experiences and their students' work with their mentors

  • Actively participate in the "Expert Meetings (webinars)" to be held for each educational theme one evening with invited subject area experts, and invite parents to these webinars.


During this period, monthly assignments will be sent to create lasting attitude and behavior changes in students and to support academic and life skills from both financial and social perspectives. 

In the final month of the program, a two-day online "Solution Camp" will be held, and students are expected to develop an entrepreneurial idea as a solution to a problem in their social environment, while teachers will provide support and representation to their students at this stage.


Participants included in the social learning group to be established will also be part of a professional learning community.


The following topics will be covered during the program:

  • Personal Understanding and Exploration

  • Rights and Responsibilities

  • Saving and Spending Money

  • Planning and Budgeting

  • Social and Financial Entrepreneurship
