America Saves Communications Associate

The Consumer Federation of America (CFA) seeks a highly competent and motivated individual to support a national campaign to promote personal saving among low- and moderate-income households. The campaign is led by America Saves, a CFA program that works with a wide range of institutions to encourage and assist individuals to build savings, starting with an emergency fund.

The communications associate will work closely with the America Saves communications director to assist in creating, formatting, and distributing information about America Saves and saver resources. This part-time position is assured for six months.

We are looking for a public interest-minded and technologically savvy recent college graduate who is resourceful, detail-oriented, and an excellent writer. Knowledge of graphic design or video production is a plus. So is the ability to work in CFA’s DC office, though remote applicants will be considered.

CFA is an equal opportunity employer.

Starting and Continuing a Personal Finance Journey

When Kiara Hardin, now a junior at Western Illinois University, became an intern with the Chicago Summer Business Institute during her sophomore year of high school, she began her personal finance journey. The program required participants to open a savings account.


Inspired to Build Savings By Starting Small

With little-to-no money in the bank and living on a limited income with her adult daughter, Sharon wasn’t sure if building up savings for her future was even possible. “At my age, to put debts behind me would be a relief,” she said, but she wasn’t quite sure how to even get started with a savings plan. That all changed when Sharon attended the Great Lakes Michigan Saves Pay Yourself First Saver’s Summit during America Saves Week.


Taking Steps Toward Financial Fitness

Nicky Vasquez learned about Virginia Saves when she attended her first class with Bank On Virginia Beach. The instructor shared how important it was to have a written savings goal, and the entire class joined Virginia Saves as the first step toward financial fitness.
