What’s Financial Literacy First?

We are a Colorado based, 501c3 nonprofit, public charity organization that is dedicated to uplifting our community.  We were established in 2014 and was granted our nonprofit status by the IRS in 2018.  During the years we have focused primarily on the 16-25 year olds in our community, Denver Metro.  Over the last few years we have expanded our reach to serve the 25-55+ year olds.

What Does Financial Literacy First Do?

Financial Literacy First performs two main functions:  Financial IQ Classes and Power Hours.  Our other two functions is to provide scholarships to those in need and encourage schools and organizations to adapt our Teach The Teachers Program where we mentor and share our program for sustainability.  See our Services page for more information.

Financial IQ Classes

These classes are designed to cater to the 16-25 year olds in the classrooms or other groups.  We have successfully developed 36 lesson plans and administer them in person or online.  Sponsoring schools, clubs, or organizations can choose to engage us for 4 weeks, 8 weeks, or an entire semester.  For more information just send us a message from the Contact Us page or call us at 720-862-6530.  We will be happy to send you a video about our organization, our history and catalogue.

Power Hours

These classes are designed ideally for those that have already mastered the Basics 101.  Classes are geared towards those wanting to gain more knowledge about topics such as Cryptocurrency, investing, being home buyer ready, etc.  Like our Financial IQ Classes all classes are taught by experts in their field so participants can not only learn about the topics but ask questions from the experts or set up a consultation offline.  Reach out to us on the Contact Us page or call us for details at 720-862-6530.
