Youth Can Innovation Program
The next generation of youth faces significant barriers to economic mobility and financial security. At Principal, we’ve committed to fostering social change by investing in projects that help young people ages 15-24 to earn more and save more.
Principal Foundation in partnership with the Center for Financial Services Innovation, the leading authority on consumer financial health, has launched the Youth Can Innovation Program. This is an initiative dedicated to furthering organizations that propose big ideas to help youth achieve economic opportunity and financial health.
This fall, 4 organizations presented their ideas in an Innovators Showcase event to an influential panel of business leaders, nonprofit leaders, and journalists. Two organizations—Edquity and MyPath—each were granted $150,000, while the other 2—A.M. Money and MoneyThink—received $25,000. Check out a video recap of the event.
Selected participants will also receive:
- Strategic guidance, heightened visibility, and access to a robust network in the underserved financial services industry.
- Advisory assistance and opportunities for regular consultation and collaboration with CFSI.
