New Partnership to Increase Youth Savings Behavior

The World Assembly of Youth (WAY) held their 16th General Assembly in Tirana, Albania from December 7-11th, 2014. WAY is the international coordinating body of national youth councils and organizations with 120 member organizations, from every continent.

WAY & CYFI Partnership Announced

WAY announced their new partnership with CYFI during the Assembly, resulting in Child & Youth Finance International (CYFI) becoming an official consultative WAY member. The partnership will extend both CYFI and WAYs networks and allow both organizations to work together to further the interest of youth around the world in regard to savings accounts, money management skills and youth leadership.

Savings Accounts and Money Management Skills

This year’s General Assembly brought together youth and youth organizations from around the world to discuss issues concerning youth empowerment and youth leadership. The WAY General Assembly is conducted once every 4 years, so CYFI’s Youth Coordinator Kim DeRose was honored to address the General Assembly on the importance of savings accounts and money management skills for children and youth.
