Compared with youth in higher-income households, youth from lower-income households more often face barriers to career training, and more often have limited resources and access to financial education and related services. Therefore, these youth may be less able to achieve financial well-being.

Youth employment programs offer opportunities to help young people, especially disadvantaged youth, gain the financial knowledge, skills, and access to resources necessary to effectively manage finances through adulthood.

Youth employment programs address a broad range of vocational skills. They help youth gain the abilities and training necessary to be successful in transitioning to adulthood and careers.
