Attaining good financial knowledge is a lifelong process. Therefore, Sound Decisions RDS, Inc. is passionate about helping youth and young adults gain traction early. Our financial literacy programs target at-­risk youth, helping them understand the difference between needs and wants. We introduce the concepts of money management, credit and debit, budgeting, income and expenses, saving for long-­term goals, and investing. Students who have successfully completed this program, displayed clear understanding of the concepts, and expressed a desire to pursue higher education are eligible for this scholarship.
