The importance of saving for the future is a core concept of the Center’s financial education programs. Throughout our education channels we focus on helping youth participants develop a savings-centered mindset.
All CFE youth participants are offered free savings accounts through our founding partner, SCE Federal Credit Union. 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.
