In CYFI’s 2016 – 2020 Strategy, CYFI will continue its work at the regional and global level, but will prioritize a focus on providing more tailored support to a selected number of countries. Such activities to develop the more tailored support include: advocacy, technical assistance, capacity building, program/project implementation, connecting, exchange of knowledge and best practice documentation and sharing:
CYFI strives to create financial education and financial inclusion awareness for children and youth. In doing so, CYFI supports key stakeholders at the national, regional and global level to include and/or advance financial education and inclusion for young people on their agendas, CYFI also works to gather support from other leading national, governmental and non-governmental stakeholders in the implementation of key national programs.
CYFI supports partner organizations to identify gaps in policies supporting the economic empowerment of young people and provides technical assistance to overcome those gaps. CYFI assists network members by conducting thematic trainings and workshops, sharing best practices from other countries and by linking consultant expertise with particular project, curriculum or policy development.
CYFI works together with its stakeholders from around the world to strengthen their capacity as institutions aimed at furthering their financial education and financial inclusion efforts for young people. Such capacity building involves both workshops and trainings ranging from product development to national strategy.
