BUILDING THE FIELD OF YOUTH FINANCIAL CAPABILITY
Our findings are shared with the youth financial capability field through partnerships with the National Youth Employment Coalition and Aspen Institute-sponsored groups such as the Consumer Insights Collaborative, nLIFT, and the Opportunity Youth Forum.
Additionally, MyPath leverages partnerships with regulatory bodies such as the FDIC Advisory Committee on Economic Inclusion and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau to demonstrate the impact of early and ongoing financial capability interventions on wealth-building toward advancing youth financial inclusion.
