New America has been a leader in identifying ways policy can help young people save for their futures. As a leading member of the YouthSave Consortium—a five-year effort to develop, deliver, and test savings products for youth in developing countries—we helped facilitate the opening of more than 130,000 savings accounts. Together we successfully demonstrated how savings can promote youth development and lead to far-reaching educational, economic, health, and behavioral outcomes.
