Thanks for helping your friends be more savvy with their money. Mind on My Money is now closed. 3 in 4 young people feel they've never had a meaningful conversation with an adult about money management. Mind on my Money gave our members a fun and relevant way to teach their friends about personal finance. Our members used workshop guides to give their friends the tools they need to prepare for their first credit card, manage student loans, and start saving for their futures.
Keisha ran a Mind on my Money workshop for her friends and won a $7,500 scholarship for college.
"I am involved with DoSomething.org through running a Mind on my Money workshop. I got the opportunity to learn for myself about money and teach it to other students. DoSomething.org has benefited me by teaching me skills for saving my money and spending it usefully. "
Sarah participated in a Mind on my Money workshop and won a $2,500 scholarship for college.
"In the past year, I've volunteered by helping to clean our neighborhood trails, clean and organize the North Hills Community Outreach Food Pantry, and helped run a bake sale to raise money for the Humane Society. I am currently the Vice President of the Awesome DoSomething.org Club- our local chapter of The DoSomething Club. The Mind on my Money campaign is important to me because I know that it's important to have a successful life financially, and to be able to contribute to the society. After I graduate from college, I hope to be able to work with kids, or possibly join the Peace Corp. If I was a crayon, I'd be Macaroni and Cheese Orange."

"I am involved with DoSomething.org by getting involved with all the activities that they are always being put out; such as sending birthday cards to the homeless, and giving away old pants. Campaign causes are important to me because it can empower any one to make a difference, either in someone’s life, or everybody’s. My goal in life is to receive a college degree in Animal Science so that I can open my own vet clinic and be able to help all the animals stay healthy or to get healthy, also another goal is to get a very high paying job to help my dad in his financial struggles that we have been going through for as long as I have been alive, I feel that if I get a high paying job I can get him out of his debt and help him in his stress and live the happy life that he wants to live. If I were a Crayola crayon color I would be green, for the color of life."
John participated in a Mind on my Money workshop and won a $2,500 scholarship for college.
"In the past year i have served at peoples kitchen, served at the San Luis Obispo Grass Roots Thanksgiving Dinner, and provided aid and support at the San Luis Obispo Marathon. I am involved in DoSomething.org by helping anyone and everyone that devotes themselves to worthy projects such as the ones exemplified on this website. Campaign cause is important to me because as a firefighter my goal is to help people and that is the goal of many of these projects such as helping clean up the environment and helping the elderly because that's what a firefighter does. With a college degree I hope to allow myself the opportunity to be more easily promoted in my field of work as a firefighter. If I were a crayola crayon i would describe myself as shamrock green because I am a self-reliant person who strives for growth but I am also easily made jealous."
