Students who learn to ask questions and conduct research about personal finances and business opportunities are more likely to succeed and secure a better future for themselves. Our program provides critical expertise and incentives to recognize and leverage opportunities creating a pathway to success and wealth. We teach the language of money and business, break barriers and bridge the vocabulary gap in our community. Like learning English and Spanish, money and business are a language. By offering a platform which focuses on learning the vocabulary, terminology and research of money and business allows students to fully understand and execute crucial skills
Student Finance League Inc
Student Finance League is a designated 501(c)(3) which partners with organizations, shelters, schools, law-enforcement and federal agencies hosting workshops and seminars to teach money, business and life skills. The focus is on language, vocabulary, conversations and confidence leveraging students strengths, goals and abilities promoting equality, stability and opportunity.
The financial services industry spends annually $5.5 billion on marketing products and services and $670 million on financial literacy yet the poverty line has
grown 2% over the last 20 years, consumer debt is at an all time high, student debt is at an all time high, payday loans are soaring with 36% the average gross
amount taken out, 24.5 million households are underbanked and 9 million households non-banked. This does not support a positive effect considering the
money, efforts, initiatives and attempts to help the community financially.
After four years, and 16,000 case studies, our data and extensive research concluded, there is no lack of effort, yet a language barrier between professionals and community. Observing countless events, banks and institutions speak, the students commented afterwards they did not understand much, which lead to creation of Student Finance League. Just like learning to speak English or Spanish, first learn the words, understand their meaning, use those words in a sentence and then practice conversations. Money and business are the same, does not matter how simple and slowly the teachers and volunteer speak, if the basic terminology is not developed, there is not going be an effective impact. The program is the bridge between professionals and community creating more interest, better traction and more activity grooming bankable and employable taxpayers.
Financial literacy is not jumping to budgeting and building credit, especially when the audience has no money to budget. Students check out before even checking in because its not relevant. Financial education starts with learning how to speak the language of money, how to generate income, maximize earning potential then how to manage, spend, save and protect that money.
This program was created from focus groups where we asked students to go through mainstream financial literacy initiatives and highlight the words, phrases and concepts that presented the most problems and difficulties. There’s definitely no lack of effort but a language barrier and this program fills that need. Banks and their volunteering efforts are admirable and crucial but speaking about budgeting and credit to someone with no income or money, on top of “fancy” vocabulary and coming from the “better” side of the tracks leads to students checking out before they check in. Watching the Students reactions to banks and financial education before and after the vocabulary lessons was night and day. Just because someone speaks English, does not mean they speak the language of money. Another interesting find was the way different cultures spend, save, invest and earn money. By teaching the language of money and developing their research and question asking skills, students can establish themselves financially while still aligning with their family, community and culture.
