Building the Financial Capability of Youth in Workforce Programs
In 2017, Prosperity Now partnered with the Citi Foundation to launch the Youth Financial Capability Fund (YFCF) to support youth workforce development organizations to embed financial capability services—including financial education, access to safe and affordable accounts and savings opportunities—into their existing workforce programs. The YFCF involved five national youth workforce development organizations: Genesys Works, Juma Ventures, NPower, STRIVE International and Urban Alliance.
Over the course of the 18-month YFCF engagement, Prosperity Now gleaned 11 key insights across five categories that can help agencies working with youth to develop financial capability programs that meet their needs.
