TCA Education Partnerships

Take Charge America has made significant strides over the past decade to improve financial literacy among the nation’s youth. We are proud to be the founding and primary supporter of Take Charge Today (formerly Family Economics & Financial Education), a program we helped establish in 2001 to provide middle and high school teachers with free personal finance curriculum and training.

Take Charge Today is a program of the Take Charge America Institute for Consumer Financial Education and Research (TCAI). TCAI was created through an endowment from Take Charge America. Located at the University of Arizona, the institute’s mission is to create research-based educational outreach programs to improve financial literacy and help consumers make informed choices in today’s complex markets.
