This press release announces the Citi Foundation’s generous contribution of $5 million in funding to the CFE Fund to provide more than 2,400 low-income youth with summer jobs and access to financial education as part of Summer Jobs Connect (SJC) in 2018.

Summer Jobs Connect enhances municipally-led summer youth employment programs by integrating structural linkages to safe and appropriate banking products, services, and education. Since launching in 2014, the Citi Foundation has invested over $23 million in this initiative, which has provided nearly 11,000 low-income youth with summer work experience, access to financial education, and appropriate financial services; SJC city partners have built these financial empowerment strategies into the infrastructure of their Summer Youth Employment Programs.
