Economic Well-Being

Financial Empowerment – Our Approach

Detroit has become a popular spot for new businesses to call home. We want to ensure the city’s youth can share in the prospect of ownership.

Knowing how to manage personal finances is critical to building a secure future for oneself and one’s family. In order for Detroit youth to have true economic opportunity, they must be equipped with the financial knowledge and confidence needed to be responsible and self-sufficient adults. In addition to supporting programs that teach financial literacy to youth and their families, we support youth entrepreneurship activities.

Financial Empowerment is one of three approaches we’re taking to expand prosperity for Detroit youth. Read about our other two approaches: College & Career Pathways and Youth Employment.

The Skillman Foundation

A voice for children since 1960, the Skillman Foundation works to ensure that Detroit youth have access to high-quality educational and economic opportunities and a strong, broad network of champions that work on behalf of young people’s interests.
