As part of the "Step-Up" project, "Take it to the Bank" supports urban youth and family households with Financial Literacy classes via Satellite TV. The "Step-Up" project provides youth with online technology access and computer assisted learning for financial literacy, entrepreneurial training, educational enrichment, life skills training, and job search assistance.
Our template approach has always been to provide youth and young alike with access to music, and we are using the organ program to achieve our objectives. Through your gracious and supportive “grant” of free use for a year, we have been able to deliver… not only the lessons to 55+ students at two sites, but also to see improvements in youth behavior and scholastic achievement.
“Not only are these classes helping her middle child but also her eldest child who was diagnosed with Autism and had serious anger management issues. He was very aggressive, uncontrollable and she was concerned about his behavior. After four and a half months, she began to see major changes in her eldest son’s deportment. He is more tranquil, he finishes what he starts, and he is more focused and has a calming disposition. His character and attitude has completely changed.”
