In honor of Black History Month, we at the Grant Cardone Foundation wanted to share our part in uplifting the marginalized youth in our community. Financial literacy is one of the most important skills people need in order to shape their own financial future.
Unfortunately, many in our nation never have the opportunity to fully grasp this critical skill. Millions of Americans do not know how to properly manage, maintain, or grow their finances or haven’t had the privilege of learning how to do so. This is where we want to help our communities by hosting this economic empowerment event.
We at the The Grant Cardone Foundation have partnered with The Circle of Commerce to host an Economic Empowerment Workshop on February 25, 2021 to provide financial literacy to minority students in our South Florida communities. One of our main goals at The Grant Cardone Foundation is to provide financial education to adolescents so that they can flourish into successful adults.
This workshop hosted at the 10X Classroom at Cardone Enterprises had students from the Circle of Commerce’s group which is composed of four non-profit groups: 5000 Role Models, Queen Up Movement and Leadership Academy, Dr. Martin Luther King Parade and Festivities Committee and Circle of Brotherhood.
This event focused on providing knowledge geared towards the development of the proper mindset to succeed, as well as the mechanics of investing. The youth in attendance even learned how to create their own individual business plans.
To help kick off the first Economic Empowerment Workshop we have donated $15,000 to the Circle of Commerce, to support future programming and scholarship opportunities for their students.
Economic empowerment, to us, means teaching our students to have the knowledge necessary to secure a high-paying job with a real in-demand skill set without incurring any debt. To receive an education or advance economically in life, we must properly educate our youth. We want to provide financial literacy and economic empowerment for thousands of minority students across South Florida and beyond through this workshop.
