Innovating Financial Access – Partnering With Oakland Youth

Thursday, April 2, 2015 Alliance Series - East Bay

Alternatives in Action is inviting 60 people who are the best thinkers we know to help shape emergent strategies in economic access for youth. We need your great thinking as we gather experts - both professionals and youth experts - who are committed to closing the financial literacy gap for youth.

Alternatives in Action is currently working with youth leaders and financial industry experts to host a dialogue designed to stimulate more economic opportunities for Oakland youth. Alternatives in Action's youth leaders will share results from their survey findings and host a panel of adult experts, financial institutions, and stakeholders from across different sectors.

Confirmed panelists so far:

Michael Chasnow, CFED
Lisa Joyner, US Bank
