Financial Literacy Program

At BLACC Bottle our mission is to identify ways we can make an impact within the communities we serve. Through our own experiences we've learned that inner city youth are at a disadvantage due to the limited access to financial conversations at home and available programs. We've decided to make this a focus for our company. Our team created the BLACC Bottle Scholarship Fund to help promote financial literacy amongst high school students so they can learn about investing and entrepreneurship. 
With the support of our sponsors, and profits from sales, we will pay for students to participate in a high profile investment course, and provide them with the start up funds to apply what they've learned. 
We will monitor and mentor these students to track the success of our program.
 
Thanks for all the support! Together we can make a change.
