Programs



Our mission is to improve the economic education and financial literacy of Bay Area Youth. We work with students and teachers to offer financial education through a variety of programs. We use the Council for Economic Education's National Standards for Economics and Financial Literacy as the framework for all of our programs.

Working With Students


We recruit and train volunteers from the finance industry to teach in Bay Area high school classrooms and youth organizations. Our volunteers lead Personal Finance Workshops through a flexible program model - helping teens learn what they must know before graduation. We offer classes via Zoom or in person.

Are you interested in arranging a free personal finance workshop for your group or classroom? Please complete our online request form, or download our brochure for more information.

Empowering Women for the Future
This special event celebrating International Women's Day helps high school girls improve their financial literacy. Women working as professionals in finance volunteer to serve as mentors for the students. Held each year in March, this event provides a unique opportunity for girls from underserved communities. Learn more about this event.


Working With Teachers


We provide free professional development workshops for high school teachers throughout the year. Our workshops feature university professors and industry professionals who provide lesson plans, demonstrate classroom activities, and share favorite resources for teaching economics and personal finance. Teachers from throughout the Bay Area are invited to participate, and our workshops have always received stellar reviews! Workshops qualify for University credit, and substitute teacher costs are reimbursed.
