What People Are Saying About YBA
I want to thank you so much for giving Jenifer the change to follow her dreams and work hard in focusing on her career. I never imagined she could have been selected for the scholarship. I always worry how I can afford to pay for her education but thanks to you, she has the skills and knowledge to help her save for the future!
– YBA Scholarship Winner, Jenifer Sanchez’s Mother
My favorite topic was budgeting. It really made an impact to me when I think about my future and how to save money. The most challenging topic was networking because I am very shy but I am also very thankful for YBA because it has helped me get out of my shell
– Isis Soriano, 10th Grade | YBA Students, Alliance Neuwirth Academy High School
What I taught my students in YBA is what I wish I was taught when I was in high school. Because of YBA, I had been able to expose my students to important information regarding college and career readiness, financial literacy, and business early on to better prepare them for a successful future.
