WHAT WE DO:
Since 2003, the Take Charge America Institute for Consumer Financial Education and Research (TCAI) at The University of Arizona has worked to create research-based educational outreach programs that improve the money-management skills and financial confidence of youth and young adults.
TCAI works with a national network of scholars to incorporate the latest insights about consumer financial decision making into all of our programs. Our most prominent current research initiative is the Arizona Pathways to Life Success in University Students (APLUS) longitudinal survey, which is helping researchers to understand how young adults acquire positive financial attitudes and behaviors.
WHAT WE OFFER:
We directly impact 600,000+ young adults annually through our high school/middle school financial education programs. TCAI’s unique collaboration model allows us to work with teachers, and financial education leaders at the local, state, and national levels through a variety of programs.
WHAT WE NEED
Teachers and schools partner with us to deliver curriculum to students. Corporate and foundation partners support specific research projects and teacher training events.
