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.
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.
