I have been involved in many community projects, but I have never seen one that works as good as this project. Students actually get it! They become motivated. Their attendance, grades and behaviors change exponentially.
This is a great project. Schools not involved are missing something great.

The Future Leaders of the World (F.L.O.W.) Program is a unique opportunity for students in grades 5-9 to participate in a financial literacy experiential and engaging program that builds character, teaches educational and life skills and develops personal motivation. Through a simulation employment agency students become employees responsible for their finances, bill paying, purchases, etc. They are paid every two weeks in cyber money based on their GPA, absences and tardiness. Thus, the F.L.O.W. empowers students with practice life skills, work ethics, personal development and financial literacy while simultaneously helping them to acquire and maintain full engagement in the academic learning process.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

achieving its five objectives: an increase in motivation to be successful, a decrease in asbsences and tardiness, a reduction of negative behavior in the classroom, a development of an understanding of how money works in the real world and an understanding how participants' current work habits will affect their lifestyle. This is exciting stuff.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

help to make it both a local and national program available to more students.

This is a Student/Employee driven, worthy program that teaches children how to handle a paycheck, pay bills in a timely manner, pay all taxes, and to save to improve their future.The object is to help students realize how their education will impact their life. Raising their GPA, raises their paycheck. I believe when one learns about finances at an early age, lifetime habits are developed. Grants for such a project as this will take this project to another level as the name implies. We are looking at the Future Leaders of the World, our children. Help us educate as many as possible about everyday Finances.

I personally have seen the statiscial results of students/employees that have completed one year in this programs and those that have completed 1/3 of a school year. GPA's raised by 78%, Tardiness decreased by 86%. Students were engaged.
