Opportunity Passport is a package of resources to help young people become successful adults with tools for planning your future, saving money for important expenses while learning financial skills.
The goal of the program is to help you purchase assets that are critical to your success. Opportunity Passport participants have paid for:
- College tuition
- Business startup costs
- And more
Enroll in the program and you'll get:
- Matched savings - You'll open an Individual Development Account (IDA) where you will save for key assets. If you're saving for a car, any money that you saved will be matched 4:1. For all other assets, your savings will be matched 2:1, up to $1,000 per year. For example, if you save $1,000 in your IDA, it will be matched with an additional $2,000, giving you a total of $3,000.
- Personal Bank Account - so you can start managing your money like an adult
- Financial training opportunities, community connections and volunteer opportunities
