The study found that student’s financial literacy rates rose by 42% over the course of 12 programming sessions with 8 in 10 students being highly satisfied with the program. Most importantly, the study revealed that students felt they were 85% more likely to graduate high school after the WealthyLife program. Results exceeded expectations of all parties involved and gained adoption into a new Dept. of Education policy for Early Childhood Family Engagement.
