How We're Solving This

We’re spreading the wealth by teaching financial empowerment. We address the stark national wealth gap with an innovative financial literacy curriculum developed at the University of Pennsylvania. Our curriculum is uniquely designed to financially empower underserved communities and grow wealth. Our track record is impressive: In Philadelphia, more than 2,700 participants have taken the free adult business literacy program. The B2W program is currently being implemented in fifteen schools across the Philadelphia area, with more programs being held at senior community centers, health community centers, and churches.
