Do Good, Earn Greatness.

We're on a mission to deliver the first debt-free generation.

Credit Do is a non-profit that provides middle schoolers and opportunity to learn, work and save for higher education.

Our 2-week, in-school unique financial education curriculum, Smarter Barters™,  enable students to learn 7-10 hours of financial educaiton, conduct a work-service initiative with their class in exchange for funds to buy essentials.  Further, merchant partners and community sponsors match students with a deposit-only educational savings account.   

By connecting with schools, businesses, non-profits, credit unions and banks, student participants have the power to support themselves while supporting their communities.

It’s a simple idea with transformative results.

THE FACTS:

•  Americans have amassed over $1.6 trillion in college debt

•  The average college student graduates with over $37,000 in college debt

HOW WE WORK:  Each program is based on (3) fundamental building blocks: LEARN. WORK. SAVE.

At Credit Do we believe that each member, business and organization of a community is a student. 

We customize each program to meet the most pressing needs of our communities by creating strategic alliances with local partners.

This bridge facilitates each building block directly to both our student participants.

OUR IMPACT:

Our youth pilot programs in New York City offer only a glimpse of what the next generation can accomplish.

In 11 programs, over 300 middle school students

  • LEARNED the fundamentals of personal finance in their math classes
  • WORKED a total 955 hours and EARNED a combined $13,650 - ($10 / work svc. hr.) collecting food for local food banks 
  • SAVED a combined $9,275 to jump-start their college savings 

They also: collected over 22,263 pounds of food—that's over 15,720 meals rescued for local food banks—generated over $42,000 in food sales for participating local businesses, and celebrated over 150 work heritage super-role models!         

WIN-WIN-WIN.
