Financial Literacy and Economic Security
Every woman should have enough fundamental financial literacy skills to secure her economic independence and long-term security. JWI is committed to making this knowledge base a cornerstone of every woman’s education – by creating innovative financial literacy programs for girls and women of every age – and also to advancing equal pay policies on Capitol Hill.
Our series of Life$avings® workshops empower teen girls, college students and young professionals to start managing their money early in their careers. Teens and young women learn the importance of self-sufficiency; that with money of their own, they’ll enjoy more options and freedom than they will without personal savings or independently-held resources.
Life$avings® for Teens includes a mother/daughter seminar, workshops for teens, a public awareness campaign, and more, and teaches key elements of budgeting, saving, and asset building, all within a Jewish context. Life$avings® for College Students and Young Professionals includes workshops and public awareness materials for women transitioning out of college, empowering them to negotiate their salaries and plan for long-term economic security.
