Financial Literacy Bootcamp

Welcome to Save it Forward Initiative's Financial Literacy Bootcamp!

About Us


The Save it Forward Initiative launched its Financial Literacy Program the Summer of 2015.

Financial Literacy is the ability to understand how money works in the world: how someone manages to earn it or make it, how that person manages it, how he/she invests it (turn it into more) and how that person donates it to help others.

We provide an intensive four day educational program introducing students to the fundamentals of saving, budgeting, and investing money.

Our mission is to build a happier and more prosperous world through financial literacy education.



"I think this is a curriculum that should be taught to all teens. The world would be a different place if young people started out with financial literacy."

"I really enjoyed the experience, and I learned a lot about managing and saving money, credit, and investing. The skills and knowledge I obtained during this class will undoubtedly serve me well both now and in the future, and I will definitely put them into practice."

"This was such a valuable life skill class that they can put into action as they grow into their adult independence."
