We are always looking to partner with like-minded organizations to further our work in educating young people to make smart financial decisions and change their lives.


Classes are held twice a year, in the spring and fall. We highly recommend early enrollment as space is limited and classes fill quickly. We have a great loose atmosphere where you come to learn these basic financial principles with like-minded people who are trying to do everything in their power to ensure their future is accounted for.
