Our Mission

For the last 100 years, students have been taught subjects such as math, reading, science, etc. However, one skill that has been neglected in education is financial literacy.  Consequently, students are not informed about saving, budgeting, investing, and other financial tips that ultimately set them up for the future. Brevard Finance for Youth is an organization created and developed to teach students who primarily attend Title-1 schools to set them up for a successful financial future. 


What We Do

Brevard Finance for Youth is a dynamic and proactive organization dedicated to promoting financial literacy among students in schools. Our mission is to empower the next generation with the knowledge and skills necessary to make informed financial decisions and build a secure economic future.

At Brevard Finance for Youth, we believe that knowledge is the key to financial empowerment. We visit schools of all levels, from elementary to high school, to conduct interactive and engaging workshops on personal finances. Our team of experienced educators and financial experts lead these workshops, ensuring that students gain practical insights into managing their money, saving, budgeting, and investing. We understand that financial literacy needs vary across age groups, so we tailor our curriculum to meet the specific needs of each grade level. For younger students, we focus on the basics of money, savings, and responsible spending, while for older students, we delve deeper into topics such as credit management, student loans, and investing.

Our approach goes beyond theory. We connect financial concepts to real-life situations, making it relatable and understandable for students. Through practical exercises and simulations, we equip them with the skills they need to navigate the financial challenges they will encounter as they progress through life. In addition to in-person workshops, we provide a wealth of online resources, including articles, videos, and tools, to help students and educators continue their financial education journey. Brevard Finance for Youth also organizes contests and challenges that encourage students to apply what they've learned, building confidence and rewarding their efforts.

Community engagement is a fundamental aspect of our mission. We actively collaborate with parents, teachers, and school administrators to reinforce the importance of financial education. We offer resources for parents to continue the conversation at home and encourage schools to integrate financial literacy into their curriculum. Beyond the classroom, Brevard Finance for Youth advocates for greater emphasis on financial education at the local and national levels. We work with policymakers, educational institutions, and other organizations to promote the inclusion of financial literacy in school curricula.

By partnering with Brevard Finance for Youth, schools and communities can ensure that their students are equipped with the knowledge and skills to make sound financial decisions, setting them on a path toward a secure and prosperous financial future. Our commitment to promoting financial literacy is an investment in a brighter and more financially responsible generation.
