Here at YFIA we teach youth in disadvantaged areas about personal finance basics. As we approach our fifth year we have now served over 1700 youth. We focus our attention on Black and Hispanic communities. We have converted our in person workshops to an exciting virtual experience due to the pandemic. We are a supportive program to the Foster Youth of Contra Costa County (CCC ILSP) as well as Richmond Promise.
We employ student workers to deliver our content from colleges such as UC Berkeley, UC Merced, UC Davis UPenn and San Francisco State. In order to keep our college internship going, our friends at Travis Credit Union will DOUBLE any donation up until September 30th. We are now in the final hours and we need your help to meet our goal. Every dollar that you give will go to support our Student Workshop Leader Program so that they can continue to provide financial education to our youth most in need. Thank you for taking the time to read our story!
