DCU Next Generation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit with a primary mission of preventing generational poverty through financial literacy. However, we also have another goal:

Let’s make financial education less intimidating!

In a country where money is needed for virtually everything; doesn’t it seem odd that financial education is not adequately encouraged throughout our school systems? So, if we’re not learning about money in school then how do people learn about finances?

Something’s not adding up

We believe generational poverty can be alleviated through more engaging, inclusive and repetitive financial education themed workshops that galvanize communities to develop more opportunities for financial freedom in future generations! 

Below is a snapshot of participant data collected from the community activities/programs that we are directly supporting.
