Educate, Encourage, Empower
We are a 501c3 organization which provides a three-year financial literacy curriculum for middle-school students in under-served communities. Developed at Johns Hopkins University, we introduce students to business concepts, expansion possibilities, reasons for taking a company public, and ways to compare company performances. As students learn, they earn money by attending school regularly and improving grades. Earnings up to 80 SIF dollars each year enables students to purchase publicly traded company stocks that become theirs when graduating from high school and turning eighteen. Academic fundamentals are reinforced throughout.
