What resources are available to you as a student in the vibrant city of Portland? How do you use those resources to maximize your potential or to assist others?

In this First-Year Learning Community, students will…

  • Learn how to use the power of financial interest for you, rather than against you
  • Experience partnerships with organizations located in Portland to assist those in poverty
  • Explore how you can make a difference through asset building and service
  • Develop skills necessary in the business workplace such as communication, interviewing and resource management
  • Enhance mathematical concepts in personal finance, logic, algebra, and problem solving
