The Colored Girls Empowerment Project (C.G.E.P.) aims to create community amongst young women, femmes, trans and non-binary folks of color in the Bronx and provides financial literacy training to prepare young people to invest in their futures. We aim to equip students with knowledge and life skills that will empower them to take control of their lives and their futures. CGEP’s curriculum will consist of teaching students to save and budget, fill out a FAFSA, read a financial aid package, apply to scholarships, manage credit cards, entrepreneurship, taxes, homeownership and retirement planning. By the end of the program, youth will be able to make informed financial decisions as they move through life.
