Each year, as part of the national Summer Jobs Connect (SJC) initiative, the CFE Fund, with generous support from the Citi Foundation, partners with mayors and local governments from across the country to connect 2,550 young people with summer jobs, and more than 110,000 young people with financial education, banking access, and other financial empowerment resources.
There are 1.2 billion young people around the world, more than ever before. 156 million are working yet living in poverty, and 71 million are unemployed.
The Citi Foundation is focused on preparing today’s young people to be the most employable generation yet.
It’s going to take us all, working side-by-side, to tackle the world’s greatest social, economic and environmental challenges.
That is why the Citi Foundation partners with over 250 community organizations across more than 80 countries and territories globally.
4 billion people, 54% of the global population, currently live in cities. The UN expects this to grow to 6 billion, or 66% of the global population, by 2050.
The Citi Foundation supports initiatives aimed at building vibrant, sustainable cities that offer economic opportunities for low-income residents.
