Military Youth Saves

Military Youth Saves (MYS) is an initiative of America Saves that motivates first-time workers to save a portion of their income. MYS encourages young people to take the Military Saves Pledge and set savings goals. We are beginning our work in this area with a large and vulnerable population, young first-time summer workers from low-income households. These young people are inexperienced about personal finance and are less likely to save any of their earnings. Employment for this group of 16- to 24-year-olds reached nearly 20 million in July 2013, as reported by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
