Creating Economically & Financially
Empowered Individuals & Communities

The Challenge

  • The average college graduate has nearly $20,000 in debt, mostly from credit cards
  • Only one in five teens report that their parents have taught them how to invest their money
  • Teens of color spend 97% of their money, deriving their sense of identity from material purchases
  • People of color make up less than 10% of the investment workforce
  • As a result, people of color tend to have lower credit scores, an overall lack of understanding about money, finance, investing, and wealth accumulation, or how to establish, build and maintain credit. They don’t have money to invest and even if they do they don’t know where to even start. And they don’t choose finance, investing, and money management as a career path.
