F.I.A.T.M. is leading the way in recognizing the need for our youth to receive financial literacy. Our ESTEAM (Economics- Financial Literacy, Science, Technology, Arts + Math) program. Several years ago, comedian, Sinbad publicly discussed the ‘Digital Divide’ in the predominately POC (People of Color) communities. Now, this is not across the board. However, there is always room for improvement. Recently, I came across a post on mediatakeout.com in which rapper, Jim Jones discussed the importance of the youth needing money mentors. Jones candidly shared the pitfalls of not being exposed to how to make money, the value of a dollar and the consequences of your lack of knowledge. The biggest takeaway is precisely what compelled F.I.A.T.M. to offer the ESTEAM program: Applied Knowledge Is Power. It is imperative to know at minimal a working knowledge of block chain, cryptocurrency, balancing a check book, how to write a check, credit and much more. Years ago in both Junior and Senior High School there were elective classes called Home Economics where you took a cursory dive into life applicable studies. Needless to say, those days are long gone. Add to that the demands that parents have these days and it’s no secret why this much needed topic has landed on the bottom of things to discuss.
F.I.A.T.M. endeavors to meet basic and latent needs. This is simply another reason that you can feel comfortable sponsoring our program. If you’re interested in reading the article I referenced, you can find it here:
If you have a heart toward empowering our youth with your skills, time or resources feel comfortable sending me an email: Jacqui@FiatmGroupInc.org. I’d love to enter into a conversation with you.
Until next week,
