Financial Education

 

The unique thing about our organization is that we design all of our curriculum in-house from credible financial sources. Our curriculum is designed with the intention to teach financial literacy in a format that children will understand through activity-based learning. Our volunteers teach these lessons at various schools, after school programs, and nonprofits around Austin.
