Getting young people on the path to financial success



Millions of young people enter the workforce every day without basic money management skills. The financial decisions they make in the beginning of their working lives can affect their financial success in the future.

the Department of Labor Organizations like the National League of Cities will work with us to discuss this program with cities across the country. Our program will provide targeted technical assistance in up to 25 municipalities, and we’ll work with local leaders to integrate financial knowledge and skills-building services into existing youth employment and training programs. We’ll learn and share the most effective ways to help youth make the most of their paychecks.

How to participate

We’ll work with approximately 25 municipalities across the country that offer year-round youth employment programs. Please keep in mind this is not an opportunity for a grant, contract, sub-contract, or funding. This program will only provide technical assistance to existing year-round youth employment programs. To see if your municipality might be a good fit, check out thecriteria for submission and email us a letter of interest by April 20, 2015.

"Communities Helping A New Generation of Entrepreneurs, Inc." (CHANGE, Inc. ) is an organization that provides entrepreneur and money management related resources. 

Communities Helping A New Generation of Entrepreneurs, Inc. (CHANGE) was founded in 2005 by Ms. Sonya Lane and Mr. A.D Wilbourn. CHANGE was created to bring awareness about small business development and managing money. In early 2004 A.D. Wilbourn began to formulate a music production company, during his start up phase Sonya and A.D. often discussed how great it would have been if they had known in high school that owning a business was an attainable goal. 

They began research on entrepreneurship in Arkansas, and found some the schools had teachers who implemented entrepreneurship or economics into their lessons during the school year. This prompted them to start providing resources to the community to bring greater awareness about entrepreneurship across the state of Arkansas. 

Entrepreneurship plays a vital role in today’s society for various reasons. The entrepreneur is often the source for providing new and improved products and services. The best ideas for new businesses come from our youth. 7 out of 10 high school students say that they would like to start a business someday. The future of the small business world lies within the creative minds of our youth, and they should be given all the skills needed to turn a great idea into a successful business.

Hi! I am Sonya Lane

I try to learn something new each day and I thank God for my many blessings. I enjoy sharing my knowledge, resources, time and anything else I have to help others. My goal is to make sure that the youth in Arkansas strive to be the best, learn to recognize opportunities, seek higher education and stay alcohol and drug free. The youth are our blessings from God and it is up to us to make sure that they are well prepared to be our next Leaders, Parents, Educators and much more.
