On Saturday, Chase hosted its first community financial education seminar at Baldwin Hills Crenshaw. The event was aimed primarily for young African American men aged 16-24. The event challenged attendees to ask the question, why is it important to save?

The purpose of the seminar was to give tips and advice on the importance of and how to get into the practice of saving early on as young adults. For many in attendance this was the first time they had received financial guidance on healthy financial habits.
