Kyle T. from Boys & Girls Clubs of San Francisco was named the Money Matters Ambassador to help teens across the nation learn about saving money, avoiding debt and planning for the future.
When teens learn about financial literacy, they’re better prepared to avoid debt, budget and save, and understand how money management can provide the foundation for a great financial future. Club teen Kyle T., a college freshman from San Francisco, California, is ready to do just that.
Kyle was recently named the 2023 National Money Matters Ambassador from Charles Schwab Foundation and Boys & Girls Clubs of America. He also received a $5,000 scholarship toward his college education.
Boys & Girls Clubs are committed to supporting youth in being life and workforce ready, equipping young people with career exploration, and practical skills to navigate first jobs and college preparation. In fact, in Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s 2023 Youth Right Now survey, 93% of 11th and 12th graders said they know what education or training they need for the career they want, and 91% know the costs to expect.
Kyle attended Boys & Girls Clubs of San Francisco for over eight years and was involved in a variety of leadership and community services programs and work training programs. Earlier this month, he started his college career at University of California, Irvine where he plans to major in Computer Science.
Through Money Matters, Boys & Girls Clubs of America and Charles Schwab Foundation have awarded $670,000 in scholarships to Boys & Girls Club teens.
Boys & Girls Clubs of America provides youth mentorship, engaging programming and meaningful life experiences that boost youth self-esteem, build confidence and contribute to healthy mental, emotional and physical well-being.
