“What I’m finding and learning is that there is great wealth and great knowledge beyond anything we really ever understood in the marginalized and the poor.” Listen to Able Works CEO and Co-Founder John Liotti’s comments about breaking the chains of generational poverty at City Ministry Network‘s Catalyst Modesto earlier this month!
You can support Able Works’ programs like Future Profits in a unique matching opportunity today! Every week, FutureProfits helps connect the dots for thousands of high school students in eleven partner schools across the Bay Area, from Carlmont High in San Carlos to Arroyo High in San Lorenzo to Sequoia High in Redwood City. Under-resourced and immigrant students need the education, financial knowledge and life-skills that FutureProfits provides to make the transition from surviving to thriving.
Motivation comes in many forms. For some of us, it is the challenge of a new task, fear of failure, or a desire for monetary gain. For others, it may be verbal appreciation, the joy of solving a difficult problem or fulfilling a lifelong passion. In Lucy’s case, her motivation came from the aspiration to achieve her personal career goals and challenge herself.

You could protect a student from using payday loans by helping them plan ahead. You could introduce a student to your favorite college. You could share your own story and help a student avoid poor financial choices. You could encourage a student to think about their future after high school. Invest 50 minutes a week and make a difference. FutureProfits is recruiting for the 2016-17 school year and needs 50 volunteers to help us reach 900 students a week across 7 schools.
