Committee Mission: Work with high school educators to promote the program ensuring focus, adaptation and proficiency in overall financial readiness as they exit high school into college or trade school. Not intended to reduce financial aid.
Why Support the Academic Scholarship Program:
United States high school graduates deserve to have affordable college education or technical training and little to no students’ loan when they complete.
The economy failed in 2009 because many borrowers engaged in mortgages they could not afford, but they did not know, so they trusted their lender.
Financial proficiency minimizes the risks in making decisions that yields negative liquidity
Non client facing jobs or remote technology support jobs are being outsourced, demonstrating strong financial readiness skills is a major hurdle to prepare for the future
Ready our high school graduates to embrace the disciplines required to be ready for a financially responsible journey
Trophy to each teen who successfully completes the program
