Today and Beyond
Mentoring and Tutoring
One goal of Accounting For Kids® Day is to inspire professionals to become a mentor or a tutor for a child, or simply “adopt” a particular classroom by providing interaction with the children on a regular basis.
Accounting for Kids® partners with the Cincinnati Youth Collaborative to encourage business professionals to become involved in the lives of underprivileged children. There is a huge need for mentors and tutors especially in the areas of math and finance. An underprivileged child's chance for success is significantly improved if a mentor is in his or her life.
If we can teach children at an early age the fundamentals of math and finance, they will be empowered to continue developing these skills throughout their lives.
