We provide accessible, digestible, financial information that resonates with the youth of today. No big words, no fancy jargon, just simple to understand and easy to apply, so they can stack their bread and stack their knowledge.
The world of finance can be a scary place at times. Most finance programs are tailored towards adults and don’t take into account the cultural nuances and the diversity of individuals and young people. On top of that, most financial advice centers around making more income, money assumptions, and a whole load of cultural biases.
But what if you’re from a marginalized community? What if you’ve never had a bank account? What if all the adults around you have never spoken to you about money?
Rather than the traditional one-size-fits-all approach for financial education, we decided to facilitate a long-term solution for young people in financial literacy and money management. Our methods provide practical, real-life insight into gaining financial knowledge along with a set of stackable skills that form a solid foundation for their financial future.
Everyone's financial situation is different, so your solution will also be different. Our 1-on-1 counseling offers a judgement-free, human approach to help you reach your financial goals.
Our workshops provide a collaborative environment for youth to gain stackable skills and build their financial foundation. From budgeting and credit to debt management and savings, we got you covered.
We’re not like other agencies and non-profits. We empathize with the problems our members are facing and pride ourselves on the authentic approach we take in helping to fix them. To us, they’re as much a part of The Stack Project as we are, and this shared responsibility drives our sense of commitment. We sum this up as:
We developed The Stack Project as a youth-focused, financial empowerment program that contextualizes the modern financial world within youth culture today.
Stack embodies youth development principles, situational learning, and money speak that’s focused on the world that they live in.
Our programs foster a collaborative learning experience that utilizes existing technologies, entertainment, and real-life situational training to teach various aspects of money management and consumer decision-making.
Isn’t it strange how we end up making some of life’s biggest monetary decisions when we have the least financial knowledge?
Rather than wait until they’re stuck with a mountain of credit card and student loan debt, why not teach young people the fundamentals of finance early and help them to make informed decisions.
Money isn’t just for spending… it also gives you options and lets you be in control of your life. What if you learned about savings and emergency funds, so that you can build your financial future?
At Stack, we teach young people how to save on any income level, so they can stack their bread and stack their knowledge.
