  • master’s degree with knowledge of financial services and asset development, income inequality, wealth building and youth development;
  • seven to 10 years of practitioner experience working directly with community-based organizations and/or intermediaries focused on asset building, credit and savings, youth financial capability, work supports and benefits access; or post-secondary education and training;
  • knowledge of strategies to increase economic stability and mobility through reducing debt from high-cost auto and predatory loans, fines, fees and drivers’ licenses; medical debt; and student loans;
  • experience implementing projects addressing structural pathways/barriers to racial and gender equity as well as income- and wealth-building; and
