NEXT MEETING: January 5, 2017
Youth Finance Institute of America
Youth Finance Institute of America’s (YFIA) goal is to educate youth about basic personal finance life skills. YFIA’s curriculum offers an opportunity for youth to break the cycle of poor money management habits. It prepares youth to become financially independent and to be aware of common pitfalls that lead to excessive debt and financial turmoil. YFIA’s helps youth, ages 14-24 located in low to moderate income neighborhoods.
YFIA’s programs include the Money Talk Workshop Series focusing on basic finance life-skills; Financial Mentoring for Foster Youth, a financial mentoring program; and Cash for College workshops, a partnership with the California Student Aid Commission and Richmond Promise.
