We focus our efforts on improving the academic, social and occupational outcomes for at-potential youth. Due to the new challenges caused by the COVID pandemic, we created new programs to be effective in today’s society. Our virtual program “Cash App Classroom” teaches young people while they are safely in their homes. Many of them used to receive free lunch at school, but since some schools are closed, we filled that void. Our team members buy food from local restaurants and deliver the food to each young person’s home. Participants of “Cash App Classroom” learn financial literacy, life skills, entrepreneurship and job readiness.
Participants receive monetary rewards in real time through Cash App for correct answers during the Q&A segments of the virtual class. We currently hire several mentees to work for the program doing food pickups and dropoffs, as well as assisting the director in the office with lesson planning and filming. We want to create innovative and exciting ways to inspire young people to reach their goals and thrive in society.
