FutureProfits

FutureProfits™, our flagship education program, empowers high school-age students in under-resourced communities to deepen their financial knowledge, build healthy money habits, and harness a greater vision for their future as they forge their own paths toward economic freedom. We partner with local organizations and public high schools to provide curriculum during the school year.

Why does financial education matter?

FutureProfits teaches the basics of wise financial practices. Without such interventions, life lessons for these youth are often hard-won in the adult world, as many become targets of predatory lending, high interest credit cards, and other financially exploitative practices.

 

Our Unique Approach:

Students who participate in Able Works’ programs benefit from genuine, trusting, respectful relationships with program staff who are from the community they serve, speak the same language(s), and have faced hardships similar to those of our students. 

Such relationships create safe spaces where students feel comfortable and encouraged, and directly empower our students to be able to envision brighter futures.

Outcomes

  • Students feel empowered to make informed decisions about their future
  • Students build healthy financial habits
  • Students identify a pathway after high school that leads to economic freedom
