Youth Economic Empowerment

Youth Economic Empowerment Program

  • The Center for Economic Education and U.S. Bank launched the Youth Individual Development Account (IDA) program where ninety-five 8th grade students from low income schools opened savings accounts in 2011. Each student saves $10 a month, the Center matches with $20 a month. Half of the Center’s matching is from a federal grant (AFI) of $150,000 over a five-year period.
  • To provide financial literacy to the IDA participants. The Center for Economic Education director and staff conducted a one-week Financial Fitness Camp in June 2012 for 76 students and a one-day make up camp on September 8, 2012.
