YWCA South Florida’s Matched Savings Program promotes economic empowerment by teaching the power of saving.
YWCA’s Matched Savings Program is designed to help participants build assets and achieve financial goals. Each participant earns a dollar in matching funds for every dollar saved. They can earn a maximum amount of $1,000 by building the financial empowerment skill of saving.
All Matched Savings clients must participate in a minimum of four financial education and training workshops. YWCA South Florida’s Economic Empowerment Workshops equip women (also available to men) with the tools needed for financial literacy. We also offer a range of workshops and classes online to empower the financial growth of women and men. This includes financial literacy for those who need a basic understanding of the economic system. We have a number of partners that allow us to offer career development opportunities in a number of high-need fields like technology.
Youth Savings Program
YWCA South Florida also offers an opportunity for teens between the ages of 13-18 to enroll in a savings program. Our savings program will match teens up to $300. In order to be eligible, you must have a savings account at any bank of your choice, opened in the teenager’s name.
