Last Saturday, my friends Min, Selena, Natalia, and I hosted a cocktail party in Old San Juan to raise awareness and money for the free after-school financial literacy program we’re launching – Financial Titans.
The program teaches 10th-12th graders deep financial literacy and emotional and mental well-being through hands-on learning experiences.
The program consists of 3 parts:
In Part 1, we show students how to make money. We help them make their first $1,000 by showing them how to go out and find a need, fill a need, get paid for it, and then repeat the process. We teach them communication skills, sales skills, customer service skills, and negotiation skills.
In Part 2, we teach students all of the money basics, including how money works, AND we help them set up their first checking and savings accounts (in partnership with Charles Schwab).
In Part 3, we show them how to spend, save, invest, and protect their money.
Throughout the program, we help students with their emotional and mental well-being, including showing them simple, proven techniques they can use anytime and anywhere to regulate their emotions.
PLUS, each night of the program, we feed our students a healthy, filling meal because many of them experience food insecurity.
For every $1,000 you donate, you can put a student through this 6-month program and change the trajectory of their life, which will have a profound ripple effect.
Our goal is to raise at least $100K so we can put at least 100 kids through this life-changing program in 2024.
Imagine a world where every child has all of the life skills they need to live their full potential.
You can see our program budget here.
We’re a 501c3 nonprofit (so your donation is tax-deductible), and we’re a qualifying Act 60 charity. PLUS, we just got CECFL approved (eradicating childhood poverty designation).
Please donate and invite your friends to donate.
