YouthSave Learning & Exchange Conference

Date: March 17-19, 2015
Location: ​Toronto, Ontario

 Created in partnership with The MasterCard Foundation, YouthSave investigates the potential of savings accounts as a tool for youth development and financial inclusion in Colombia, Ghana, Kenya, and Nepal by co-designing tailored, sustainable savings products with local financial institutions (FIs) and assessing their performance and development outcomes with local researchers. In addition to CSD, the consortium includes Save the Children, the Consultative Group to Assist the Poor (CGAP), and the New America Foundation.

The YouthSave Consortium will bring together Consortium members, local research/financial/community partners from Colombia, Ghana, Kenya, and Nepal, and global experts in youth finance to convene at the final Learning & Exchange Conference. The goal of the conference is to share the latest lessons and experiences from YouthSave and identify directions for future work.
