The importance of saving for the future is a core concept of the Center’s financial education programs. We focus on helping youth participants develop a savings-centered mindset.
All CFE youth participants are offered free savings accounts through our credit union partners. When possible, youth participants are also offered incentives to further encourage them to establish a habit of saving for the future. Incentives may include “starter” (seed) deposits or matched funds. Incentives vary based on funding available.
