We know youth get it. The costs associated with pursuing post-secondary education are steep. At Coast Capital Savings, we’re committed to building a richer future for youth by helping young people succeed during their school years. That’s why we offer the Coast Capital Savings Youth Get It Education Awards.  Since 2004, our Youth Get It Education Awards have provided 626 students with over $1.6 million toward their post-secondary education.

In 2015, we shook things up a bit, and reached out to school districts to help us select the recipients for the Youth Get It Education Awards. Together, we awarded 41 students a total of $145,000. Given the success of this joint effort, we’re pleased to announce that we are once again reaching out to school districts to select the recipients of the 2016 Youth Get It Education Awards.
