Please join us on October 12, 2016 for the next Alameda County Community Asset Network (AC CAN) Stakeholder Convening.
This summer AC CAN surveyed youth workforce providers to find out if they are teaching financial education to their participants, what financial topics they value, if they introduce youth to financial accounts, and the barriers they face doing this work. We are very pleased with the results and are excited to share our findings with you.
Convening Attendees will see the high level picture of how youth workforce programs are currently approaching financial education, what we are already doing well, and where we want to improve. We will also explore the most common barriers to doing this work, and provide a variety of resources to move the work forward.
WHEN: Wednesday October 12th, 2016, 8:30 am – 12:00 pm
WHAT: The Results are In: Analysis of Financial Education in Youth Workforce Programs, an AC CAN Quarterly Stakeholder Convening
WHERE: The California Endowment, Oakland Conference Center, Laurel Room, 1111 Broadway, 7th Floor, Oakland, CA 94607
At its Spring Stakeholder Convening focused on financial education in youth workforce programs, AC CAN was blown away by the energy and excitement around bringing financial education and financial products to youth in workforce programs. Program providers are well aware of the need for financial education and are looking for effective ways to incorporate it in their programs. Programs are at many different stages, and identified different needs and barriers in creating the kinds of programs they would like to see.
AC CAN gathered data during the summer youth workforce programs to summarize the experiences of workforce providers in Alameda County, and find ways to support them in achieving their goals for their programs.
Now that the data is in, AC CAN needs input from everyone who works in the field to interpret the data and strategize ways to move forward. If you are a youth workforce provider, financial educator, financial service provider, funder, or government intermediary, it is critical to have your involvement at this event.
Mark your calendars and share this invite with a colleague. Your input is imperative.
