Since 2001, the Clinton Foundation has worked to improve lives around the world and build upon President Clinton’s legacy of public service.
The America Saves First-Time Workers Program
In 2014, the Consumer Federation of America and America Saves committed to help change the savings behaviors of the youth population. By scaling their Summer First-Time Worker (FTW) program, America Saves will expand their program to ten select cities for all first-time workers, many of whom are between the ages of 18 and 25. The program seeks to leverage the orientation process to motivate first-time workers to better manage their paychecks by making direct deposit, opening a checking account, and/or automate savings easier and more convenient.
America Saves will implement a review process of their current program, which will operate in ten cities, provide recommendations for the scale up, and implement a revised program by providing an easy to implement online resource for employers and direct services for young workers to make savings a life-long habit.
Here are the latest updates of some of the Foundation’s programs at work:
