Credit union, bank regulators to host webinar on ‘youth workforce practitioners’

Youth workforce practitioners, and the banks and credit unions who develop them, are the focus of a webinar Aprll 14 hosted by the federal credit union regulator and the federal insurer of bank deposits, the agencies said Tuesday.

According to the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. (FDIC), the 90-minute webinar (which starts at 1 p.m. ET) will focus on credit union officials, bankers, and workforce providers who help young people (ages 16–24) toward financial stability.

The agencies said that Chelsea Norton of the National Endowment for Financial Education (NEFE) will share insights from recent updates to the group’s Personal Finance Ecosystem, which it described as a visual roadmap that lays out factors influencing financial well-being. The agencies said she will discuss popular media outlets that young people independently seek to increase their personal financial knowledge, including financial influencers, which the group calls “Finfluencers.”
