Enrich Our Youth is a multi-year initiative that aims to provide financial education to high school students at predominantly Black and Hispanic high schools in Florida. The Black & Hispanic communities in America as a whole have been deprived of financial education for centuries, which has played a major role in the wealth gap between Black and Hispanic Americans and White Americans. EOY aims to connect financial advisors who can interact comfortably with students, provide simple, but life-changing tips that students can implement in the near future, and inspire students to become responsible stewards of their finances while going on to increase their wealth throughout their adult lives. EOY also aims to encourage the implementation of legislation that will require all Florida high school students to take at least a ½ credit of financial literacy before graduating from high school.
