While leading a financial literacy program at a local elementary school in Ypsilanti, our co-founder, Godfrey Aguwa Jr., ran into a dilemma. “How do you make financial education engaging and accessible on a community level?” His solution-DCU Next Generation.
DCU Next Generation (DCUNG) is the nonprofit arm of Dollars & Cents University, hence the DCU, which works to provide K-12 financial education. DCUNG applies the same passion for youth financial education however we complement our work by establishing safe financial opportunities through galvanized community support. We believe financial education plus financial opportunities yields success. Of course, what better way for individuals to reach success than through an encouraging and supportive community dedicated to seeing the growth of it’s next generation thrive financially.
