Integrated Learning Track

Academic studies emphasize how low financial literacy threatens the future prosperity of many Americans – especially those from underserved communities. The Merage School underscores access to financial and business curriculum essential to long-term success for these students and their families. As a result, the Future Leaders Initiative will highlight financial literacy, and the technological business careers these families can harness to support their communities and propel the economy forward.

Your future is bright and you're ready for the road ahead. Our integrated learning track welcomes both high school and community college students. We'll be with you all the way leading up to college, through college and beyond.

Core objectives for this program include:

  • Build awareness around the importance of financial & tech literacy
  • Recruit, engage, and develop underprivileged students
  • Provide on-going support through expert mentoring & scholarships
I immensely appreciate the effort taken to create such a powerful program and I feel blessed and grateful having the opportunity to be a part of it. Future Leaders Initiative, as the name suggests, taught me about the true values of being a leader and what it takes to be a successful leader.
