Mission of YFS-Link

To expand access to financial services for youth populations around the world by developing and disseminating high quality trainings that build the capabilities of financial service providers (FSPs) and youth serving organizations (YSOs) to design and deliver services that better serve young people’s needs.

YFS-Link seeks to serve as a hub of information for the sector by convening learning events, engaging in one-on-one outreach, conducting global surveys, and documenting learning through case studies.

There are many critical questions that we are seeking to answer in the sector of youth-inclusive financial services:

  • Why is there an urgent need to provide financial services for youth populations?
  • What are the promising practices to date in providing youth populations with financial services?
  • Do products need to be designed specifically for youth or simply be made more accessible to them?
  • What are the key learnings that have taken place in the sector of youth-inclusive financial services to date? 

The challenges, opportunities, and lessons learned from innovative organizations engaged in the YFS-Link initiative provide a rich foundation for understanding this nascent sector, and will help us answer these pressing questions together as a community.  Please share your thoughts and ideas: engage directly on our YFS-Link Discussion Forum, or email us at [email protected].
