June 2017 marked the formal end of our five-year Earn Your Future® commitment to provide financial literacy resources to students and educators, which greatly surpassed our goals.
In total, we reached 5.5 million students and educators – almost twice the number we originally targeted – and made a $190 million investment. Earn Your Future cemented our dedication to financial literacy education and will live on as part of our new five-year commitment. Access Your Potential® continues to leverage the time and talent of our people in our communities, while incorporating a new focus on technology skills for students and nearly doubling the size and scope of our commitment to youth education.

Building on the success of Earn Your Future, we recently launched a new five-year, $320 million commitment: Access Your Potential, which is designed to help close the opportunity gap by equipping young people from disadvantaged communities with the skills they need to help change the trajectory of their lives. It maintains our focus on financial literacy while adding two new pillars: technology skills and mentoring.
Through Access Your Potential, we will provide 10 million students with access to financial capability and/or technology skills curricula, including career advice; train 100,000 teachers and counselors to prepare and teach students about making sound financial choices; and mentor at least 10,000 students on how to choose the right college to match their career goals.
