This video highlights youth stories from the CFE Fund’s Summer Jobs Connect (SJC) initiative and #SummerJobsConnect Twitter campaign, in which SJC participants shared their stories about the program’s impact – opening a bank account, building savings, earning pay through direct deposit, and more.

Summer Jobs Connect is an ambitious initiative spearheaded by the Citi Foundation and the CFE Fund to support young adults seeking summer employment, enhancing these municipally-led programs by integrating structural linkages to safe and appropriate banking products, services, and education. During the initiative’s fourth year, the CFE Fund worked with 13 city governments and their local Summer Youth Employment Program partners to provide additional job positions to local residents of predominantly low incomes between the ages of 14 and 24, as well as connect them to appropriate bank and credit union products and meaningful financial education.
