Youth Financial Capability

FPP’s Youth Financial Capability initiatives include several events and activities under the Bright Minds, Fresh Ideas umbrella; most notably, the Bright Minds, Fresh Ideas Think Tank Summer Internship.

This internship, powered by FPP in partnership with Orange County Public Schools/Orange Technical College, Seminole County Public Schools, Career Source of Central Florida, and made possible by sponsorship from CenterState Bank, engages rising high school students in:

A)  EXPLORATION – An in-depth research project on a selected Financial Capability-related topic;

B)  IDEATION – Brainstorming or ideation that generates potential solutions and prototypes that address societal Financial Capability challenges;

C)  PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT – Volunteer Guest Experts/Discussion Leaders engage with the interns, sharing their knowledge and insights in a variety of Financial Capability and Career-Readiness learning focus areas.
