A life of quality and quantity
Financial Empowerment Zone
Financial Empowerment Zone is an annual weekend event packed with fun - while teaching money management, investments, stock, bonds, assets, expenses, and credit responsibility.
The goal is to prepare our youth for life-long decision making by teaching them to be financially responsible adults.
The purpose of FEZ is to educate, motivate, and empower children to become regular savers and investors, thereby breaking the cycle of debt and poverty over their lives.
The FEZ Members were recognized by President Barack Obama and Alabama Governor Robert Bentley.
"Being a hard worker is one of the most invaluable or priceless characteristics any person can ever possess. This is what separates those who only dream and those whose dreams become their reality." - Erica D. Scott
