Cradle to College: Exploring How Children's Savings Accounts Pay Off
EDITOR'S NOTE: Prosperity Now's own Leigh Tivol will be speaking as part of this PolicyLink webinar next Tuesday. If you're available, we'd love it if you could join Leigh!
Join PolicyLink and a panel of experts discussing promising new developments in children's savings accounts. This webinar will explore the ways that accounts not only contribute to saving for college, but also improve educational outcomes, and the odds that low-income students and students of color enroll in college.
Hear from Jose Cisneros, Treasurer for the City and County of San Francisco, about the nation's first universal children's savings account program for kindergarteners. He will be joined by Dr. William Elliott, Assistant Professor and Director of Assets and Education Initiative at the University of Kansas, Leigh Tivol, Director of Savings and Financial Security at Prosperity Now, and Reid Cramer, Director of the Asset Building Program at the New America Foundation. They will describe the latest research, models we're seeing across the country and opportunities to support national policy advocacy.
