Youth Financial Well-Being
How can we help youth?
Because many youth face more than their share of challenges on their journey to financial independence, Coast Capital Savings strategically invests and works alongside our community partners to break down the barriers that young people face.
We believe that helping young Canadians achieve financial independence will spark a hand up movement. By tapping into the creative energy of youth and their drive to build a better future, we aim to empower youth to become change-makers and inspire them to pay it forward.
Through our Youth Community Investment Program, we focus our support on helping youth:
- build a strong financial future
- succeed during their school years
- prepare for the world of work
- address basic, social, emotional and physical needs (unless we remove these barriers, it’s doubly difficult for youth to focus on their finances)
If your community initiatives align with our Youth Community Investment Program, learn how we can help.
Get financial and in-kind sponsorship support for programs and events that help create community connection and a sense of belonging in youth.
Apply for grants to a maximum of $30,000 to non-profit and charitable organizations that offer programs that give a hand up to youth in your communities on their journey to financial independence.
