Episode 081: Topic Discussion - Helping Foster Youth Build Financial Competency
In this episode, Lynn Tonini facilitates a conversation between three individuals connected with organizations that support youth aging out of foster care by helping them build financial competency: Michael Williams with DASH Foundation (Miami, FL), Eugenia Wilson with Living Advantage, Inc. (Hollywood, CA), and Andrea Ferrero-Haggerty with Pockets Change (Brooklyn, NY). During this conversation, we discussed what their organizations do for foster youth, specifically the strategies to help foster youth appreciate how managing finances can help them reach their individual goals. We also discussed the importance of good credit, critical life documents, debt management, and the support to help these youth build their financial skillset.
