In collaboration with State Farm Insurance, the 100 will continue to establish and implement a national program to address and help eradicate financial illiteracy among youth of color.
The Dollars and $ense Youth Investment program (Dollars and $ense) is a financial literacy program sponsored by State Farm. This program was designed to provide high school students, grades 9 through 12, with the opportunity to learn and apply best practice strategies for saving and investing.
