Welcome to the Future
To empower students with practical life skills, work ethics and financial literacy while simultaneously helping them to acquire and maintain full engagement in the academic learning process.
We know that many children are still being left behind in spite of the "No Child Left Behind" policies established over the past years. With over one million children dropping out of school each year and the number growing daily, the problem has become epidemic. A major cause for high drop out rates is the disconnect between what teachers are asking student to learn and real life.
In the F.L.O.W. Project we help students make that connection by showing them in a very practical way the value of their education and the lifestyle it can provide, how their current work habits will impact their life style and how to improve their future by developing certain habits today.
Getting an education is a lot of work, but no one treats it like a job. In the F.L.O.W. Project, getting an education is treated like a job. Students no longer go to school they go to work and that work now has value because students receive a paycheck* based on the amount and quality of the work done.
* No real money is used in the project .
When it comes to Student Financial Literacy, nothing can surpass the one-on-one tutorials that mom and dad can provide in the comfort of their home at the kitchen table. However, students are not receiving this information. Through their current educational process the Future leaders of the World Project gives them a personal Financial Literacy experience in a non-threatening environment.
