Who We Are

Founded in 2005 by SCE Federal Credit Union, the Center for Financial Empowerment carries out the Credit Union's vision to provide much-needed financial education to high school youth.

What We Do

At the Center for Financial Empowerment, we’re part of a life-changing movement empowering disadvantaged youth to break the cycle of poverty and achieve financial stability. Through our programs, teens learn the skills to manage money and improve their finances, and their quality of life.​

Volunteers Making a Difference

Role-playing as merchants, volunteers challenge the student participants by acting like real salespeople that want to sell high and profit all they can, which gives participants a real world experience.
