We are starting 2016 by asking everyone to make a New Year’s resolution to saving!This webinar will feature America Saves, an organization that promotes and encourages saving among youth and adults,who will share their tips on saving.You will hear testimonials from individual savers that have taken the savings pledge, set savings goals,and developed a plan for saving money against those goals.America Saves provides resources to support low- and moderate-income individuals to reach their savings goals. Discover how important it is to save and the impact of not saving. Learn also how organizations can promote automatic savings for their staff during America Saves Week, February 22 – 27, 2016, an annual opportunity for Americans to assess their financial condition and take positive financial action with the support of thousands of organizations. You will also hear highlights about WIOA’s financial literacy focus, and ETA’s work to provide assistance to the workforce system in offering financial literacy education to youth in 25 cities.
