Research shows that youth with a small amount of money saved for higher education, coupled with community support, are more likely to enroll and graduate from post-secondary programs than youth without these savings.
Youth Forward Wisconsin’s vision is that 100% of youth will have at least a small amount of money saved for their future education. Supported by UW-Madison Division of Extension and local Extension educators, Youth Forward Wisconsin can give communities the tools to understand and implement a universal child savings account program that fits their needs, and helps their youth reach their full potential.
**Wednesday, December 7th from 11 am-noon
