Life$avings for College Students & Young Professionals
Our Life$avings® project for college students and young professionals includes workshops and public awareness materials geared toward women as they transition out of college. Teaching young women how to plan for their economic security will help ensure that they have money of their own throughout their lives.
In partnership with Sigma Delta Tau National Sorority and the SDT Foundation, we are leading Life$avings® workshops for sorority sisters on college campuses across the country. Our first program in February 2011 at the University of Georgia was cosponsored by SDT and the Panhellenic Council and had over 200 women in attendance.
Our workshops for college students began in Baltimore in 2007 with support from The Wachovia Foundation and the Jewish Women's Giving Group of the Associated Jewish Federation of Baltimore. JWI has delivered Life$avings® workshops for college students and young professionals at national leadership trainings including University of Maryland Baltimore campus, Schusterman Insight Fellows training, the Reform Action Center Machon Kaplan Intern Program, Sigma Delta Tau (SDT) Leadership College, the Kivun Leadership Program, and JWI’s Summer Series for Interns and Young Professionals in Washington, DC.
