Federal Reserve Bank of New York Financial Literacy Presentation


Heather Donovan

On September 16th, 2016 Heather Donovan from the CCL Young Adult Department represented both the CCL and the GLWDB at the Beyond CRA: Meaningful Collaborations between Financial Institutions and Workforce Entities Conference held at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. As a presenter and panelist she spoke regarding Lessons of Collaboration and how we successfully worked in Lowell to bring financial capability to a wider audience using curricula, incentives, financial fairs and more. The targeted effort to help out-of-school disadvantaged youth begin to feel more financially capable, as well as how financial institutions and workforce entities can meet both CRA and WIOA requirements through partnerships, were the underlying lessons throughout the presentation and panel.
