This unique matched savings program helps young people improve their financial capability when transitioning from foster care or navigating other youth-serving systems. Learn about how the Opportunity Passport™ allows young people to practice the skills they need to wisely earn, spend, and save money.
About the Training
Opportunity Passport includes two pathway options for trainings. Each training will be a max of 1.5 hours long, with youth needing to attend multiple trainings prior to being eligible to match (4 trainings or 8 trainings, depending on the pathway).
To prioritize health and safety, virtual trainings are being offered at this time.
If youth do not have access to a web camera, they will still be able to attend the virtual training sessions. However, they are required to attend the virtual training on a device that will allow them to hear and see the presentation from the training facilitator.
About the Training Process
Want to join a June training?
The training schedule shows the follow-up dates for KEY 2, KEY 3, and KEY 4. When registering for KEY 1, youth are registering for all 4 KEY training dates of a cohort. Spots are limited, so don’t wait to register!
Interested in Participating?
In order to enroll in the Opportunity Passport program, youth must first complete the financial education workshop facilitated by MAAC. Once youth have attended a training, they will need to fill out the application and follow the guidelines for saving and matching. Please contact an Opportunity Passport staffer to find out information on upcoming trainings in your region.
