Economic Empowerment Project
Societal and individual well-being prosper when every citizen has the basic economic knowledge and skills to thoughtfully exercise his or her economic freedom, thus taking full advantage of a country’s economic opportunities in order to thrive in meaningful ways—that is, attain economic empowerment.
The Economic Empowerment Project offers customized, industry-endorsed certification examinations for students and educators as well as professional development programs for secondary teachers and adult educators. These professional development programs are designed to equip secondary teachers and adult educators with the knowledge, skills, mindsets, curricula, and resources needed to provide opportunities for their students to learn economics, personal finance, and entrepreneurship required to make better economic decisions for themselves and others. A primary focus is placed on providing retroactive opportunities for adults with limited education and income who were not privileged to learn about these three subjects in school.
Ultimately, the Economic Empowerment Project strives to be part of the solution in empowering secondary students and adults, reducing poverty, and stimulating economic growth, particularly in impoverished areas across the United States in order to improve the quality of life for often disenfranchised and marginalized citizens.
