Creating Impact

Children’s Savings Accounts
Now in its sixth year, Learn to Earn is a financial capability program for youth and an adult in their household. This two generation approach encourages youth and fosters money conversations at home. Over the past five years, we have served over 200 youth and adults in Southeast Raleigh. 100% of the youth sets goals and approximately 53% open new savings accounts and begin to save for the first time. Contact donna@cultureofsavings.org for more information.
