Cash & Career Curriculum
Cash & Career is a 5 week summer program for 12 – 15 year olds in the Kansas City metro and Wichita metro areas. Our concept blends classes with a working internship at a local business; ending with the students getting a paid stipend for their hard work. The classroom portion is an hour and half followed by two hours at the local business.

Upon Graduation students receive the knowledge and practical application of the skills sets
needed to thrive in the professional world. Learning not only what it takes to have a job, but how to get the job they want in the future, and how to maintain and excel in that workplace. They will also receive the stipend for all the hard work they did with new insight on what to do with it through our financial literacy piece.
After the first few years of our C & C Program, we realized we were needing to offer something to continue connection and education throughout the year. This year, we are rolling out Impact Shops (3 in the fall and 3 in the spring) to serve our individual groups of students tailoring the workshop style sessions to their needs, interests and areas they need more emphasis on for their individual success. We wanted to be more than a positive summer program, we truly want to Impact the lives of the students in our program and those they interact with in their communities!
