Development of Innovative Youth Savings Programs Webinar

Child & Youth Finance International

CYFI’s 2013 webinar series will kick off with an exciting webinar (online seminar) titled “Development of Innovative Youth Savings Programs,” with a presentation by Ms. Ryan Newton, Senior Associate Youth Savings at Women’s World Banking.

The webinar will take place on Thursday, January 31st 2013 at 8:00am – 9:30am (EST). The webinar is FREE.

Ms. Newton will present “Banking on Youth,” a recently published guide for deposit taking institutions in any stage of youth savings program development— from those simply exploring the possibility of introducing youth savings, to those already offering youth products but looking for new ideas and strategies to improve performance. It is designed to be useful to a wide range of financial institutions, from small, resource-constrained microfinance institutions to established retail banks with an interest in the low-income youth market.

This guide is based on WWB’s experiences implementing youth savings programs, with a step-by-step approach to the program development process complemented by downloadable tools and detailed case studies.
