Youth Get It ™
We've made a promise to help build a richer future for youth in your community. And we're keeping our promise through our Youth Get It Community Investment Program.
So just by banking with us, you’re supporting youth in your communities too.
How can we help youth?
Every year, Coast Capital Savings invests 7% of our pre-tax profits towards local community causes. Since 2000, that’s more than $65 million.
Because youth face many challenges on their journey to independence, Coast Capital Savings strategically invests and works alongside our community partners to break down many of the barriers that young people face.
Through our Youth Get It Community Investment Program, we focus our support on three key areas:
Youth Get Financial Empowerment
We help youth in your community build a strong financial future.
Youth Get Educational Success
We help youth in your community succeed during their school years.
Youth Get Healthy Minds
We help youth in your community build a sense of belonging to decrease stress and depression.
