Getting Ready for Youth$ave

For the past 14 years, REACH has sponsored the Youth$ave Program.  Youth$ave is a financial education course for kids ages 9-18 living in REACH housing that teaches many essential financial skills and how to achieve their goals.  It’s a program that pays your child to save money!  Youth attend bi-weekly classes during the school year, earn community service credits, and make deposits at least monthly to their savings account. REACH matches their savings and helps them purchase their artistic, athletic, educational or entrepreneurial goal.  Check out pictures of the 2014 graduating class!

Enrollment takes place every July and August, and the program starts in September.  Space is limited, so apply early!  Contact .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) at 503-501-5732 with any questions.
