We started the 2018/2019 school year with an ambitious goal: to double the reach of our Money Coach program. However, as an organization that has always been committed to measurable change, it was equally important to us that we maintain the same impact on student financial behaviors.
Our post-program data analysis is now complete, and we could not be happier with the results. After completing the program,
of students had a bank account,
were tracking their expenses, and
were using a budget. We haven't just maintained our outcomes - in some categories, they've actually improved. This speaks to the strength and sustainability of the Money Coach program, and especially to the skill, passion, and creativity of our Money Coach program managers, Stephaine Crosley and Chineva Smith.
This success is also because of you: our volunteers and supporters. Thank you for your commitment to the vital mission of empowering teens with financial capability!
