Pushing Forward

Youth Program
Youth Program

We have made a decision to continue this project given the need to continue our work in this region of the country. We have also made a decision to separate our efforts into multiple GlobalGiving projects ranging from our work with youth and our work toward digital inclusion in rural East Texas communities.

With the launch of our Financial Opportunities Center (FOC), we have added over 25 new participants in the month of February alone. All of them have a need for financial literacy and would like to improve their credit scores, net worth, and net income. Several are interested in starting their own microenterprise and we're helping them to achieve that. 

One of our participants mentioned, "I wish I had known about this years ago. I would have made so many different decisions." 

These comments drive us to continue this important work. We now teach and mentor over 200 middle school students and will continue to work with them until they graduate from High School. Financial literacy will be as prevalent in their thoughts as any other subject they've studied. 

Thank you for your continued support!
