We educate families and help them save for college by increasing access to financial education and asset building.

 

FINANCIAL EDUCATION

The first step to get involved in the program is to sign up for a financial education workshop. Financial education workshops (offered in both Spanish and English) utilize FDIC curricula and address the following topics:

  • Budgeting
  • Mainstream banking versus check cashing and payday lenders
  • Maintaining a savings account
  • Acquiring assets
  • How to save and pay for college

 

ASSET BUILDING

Asset building begins after participants complete the financial education workshop and become eligible to enroll in YPI’s matched savings accounts. Currently, YPI offers a 3-year savings program with incentives during the first 12 months, ranging from sign-up bonuses to monthly deposit rewards. In addition, participants benefit from zero fees and zero balance requirements throughout the 3-year period.
