Banking on Our Future elevates the dignity, hope, and economic self-sufficiency of people in low-wealth and underserved communities through financial literacy. Since its inception, the Banking on Our Future Program has reached over 896,000 students in more than 3,250 schools and community-based organizaions in the U.S. and South Africa.

Banking on Our Future classes are free of charge for schools and communities. The program is led by HOPE Corps volunteers who have undergone comprehensive training in financial literacy and teaching techniques. Our BOOF students are given the tools they need to take control of their financial futures - by learning about empowerment, responsibility, and hope.

Banking on Our Future partners with the Nelson Mandela Children's Fund in South Africa to teach financial literacy empowerment and currently has educated over 62,000 students. Banking on Our Future  is the recipient of the U.S. Treasury Department's John Sherman Award for Financial Literacy Excellence and Oprah's Angel Network’s Use Your Life Award.
