Welcome

Welcome to the next level in financial literacy training, designed to reach the emerging generation of youth in today’s media-driven economy.  The FutureProfits curriculum blends essential life skills along with traditional financial literacy subjects, such as budgeting and banking, and also gives an in-depth look at topics including:

  1. Understanding predatory lending schemes
  2. How money circulates in urban communities
  3. Race, class and power structures in our society
  4. How goal setting and decisions affect your future
  5. The benefits of delayed vs. instant gratification

 

This whole-person approach to financial literacy, called “Life Economics”, is built to give students the tools to succeed in an economic system that a significant portion of youth is unprepared to navigate.  FutureProfits empowers students with the tools to break the chains of poverty, giving them the resources to determine their destiny and impact their community.

No more poverty because knowledge is power
