The White House today hosted a special Summit on Financial Capability and Empowerment to share measures for empowering students nationwide.

“Today’s summit drew attention to the importance of financial empowerment for all Americans, with particular focus on youth,” Bryant, announced from the White House Summit. “I commend the Obama Administration and John Rogers and Amy Rosen, who chair the President’s Advisory Council on Financial Capability, for demonstrating the leadership to shine a light on the important issues that the summit will address.”
“Few things could be more important than assuring that our nation’s youth are prepared, engaged and up to the task of keeping America’s competitive edge,” Bryant continued. “In answer to the White House Summer Jobs + Initiative and beyond, Operation HOPE has cultivated programs that will give students the ability to learn through on the job training, an opportunity to be their own boss, as well as an index to track measureable outcomes.”
