From Paychecks to Prosperity - Social Media Toolkit

Overview

Supported by the Citi Foundation, Prosperity Now launched the Youth Financial Capability Fund (YFCF) as a support to workforce development organization serving youth. The YFCF involves five national youth workforce development organizations who have worked to embed financial capability services into their existing programs. Those organizations are: Genesys Works, Juma Ventures, NPower, STRIVE International and Urban Alliance. During an 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. We now call upon our partners to help the report reach those creating the programs at a local and national level.
