What do we do- Education
Soma’s curriculum was developed knowing that young adults are future leaders. Furthering their understanding in these complex areas of finance will help strengthen their futures and the communities in which they work and live.
Starting with our local schools, many of which do not currently offer personal finance education, we offer students a 5-week, interactive course, that is fresh and relevant to today’s economy. During each class, students can earn real money to later deposit in their own bank accounts that we’ve established with the help of our banking partners.
Each 5-week session is monitored with process surveys for effectiveness; learners’ active involvement; and to ensure diversity, equity, and inclusion of participants to be representative of the community. We strive to make financial education available for every student, regardless of barriers.
Soma was able to prepare me for the real world with knowledge that my high school just didn’t have. I feel so much more prepared for College and ready to start my own business in the near future!
