Believe to Achieve is an organization dedicated to promoting financial wellness within our Mississippi community. We prepare youth to break the cycle of poor money management habits and be financially savvy. Our target demographic is youth ages 10-22.
Too many youth have no idea how to manage money. It is so important for them to be able to have good credit, save money, and prepare for college. Believe to Achieve addresses the gaps in our financial literacy system. If we don’t teach our children about money, how do we expect them to manage their money successfully as adults?
If our children do not learn about money now, it will cost them later.
