At the U.S. Department of Labor, we realize that summer youth employment is a critical element of success for young people. Our Division of Youth Services supports the workforce system to promote meaningful summer employment that helps young people develop workforce and leadership skills to get and keep good jobs, connects them to long term economic opportunity, and provides them the chance to establish good savings behavior.
This webinar will highlight Young America Saves' First-Time Workers Pilot Project which promotes saving at work for young adults, ages 16 to 24, as one effort to increase overall workplace saving. Webinar participants will learn how the summer job orientation process can be an ideal opportunity to motivate newly-hired workers to make a savings commitment, sign up for direct deposit, and open a new or use an existing bank account to save automatically, with very positive benefits.
