Our Commitment to Change:
With our Scholarship and Financial Literacy Program we’ve committed to provide a way for young people in our community to learn the life skills that we didn’t receive through the educational system. We strongly believe that exposing young people to finances and business at an early age puts them in a better position to succeed as adults.
Why We Care:
Through our experiences we found that the first time that young people in the inner city are exposed to finances and business is when the transition between childhood and adulthood happens. We want to change that by providing opportunities for young people to learn the fundamentals of finances and business, while getting them excited about the multitude of ways that they can set themselves up for success. Helping young people build a solid foundation is essential to us because we've had people in our lives help us along our journey. This is how we pay it forward.
