Knowledge is the most powerful tool for advancing financial well-being.
We’re actively engaged with partners who share our goal of advancing financial literacy in our communities.
The LAFC Academy, a concept based on professional soccer club systems around the world, invites and trains young players within certain age groups. LAFC launched its Youth Academy in 2016 with one fully funded U12 (under age 12) U.S. Soccer Development Academy (USSDA) team. The LAFC Academy has since expanded to four teams, from U12 to U15, and will be adding U17 for the 2019/2020 Academy.LEARN MORE

“It’s a sad reality for many children that their entire future could be affected by the ZIP code where they grew up. All students at Crete Academy have the opportunity to succeed and thrive, despite their circumstances. One day, the cycle of poverty will end, and these students who were once homeless or living in poverty will be leaders of the world. That’s why we begin talking to our students about the benefits of a college degree when they’re in kindergarten, and we designed a program to get them there.”
