Program Goals & Objectives 

The Coin Creators program by 8 Cents in a Jar aims to achieve several goals:

  • Economic and Financial Operations: Coin Creators is designed to help students between 12 and 18 accelerate their current business model or incubation idea. Through economic and financial operations, the program ensures that these ideas have a meaningful purpose, maximum profits, and scalability.

  • The program involves providing financial literacy training to youth to prevent juvenile delinquency. The aim is to reduce the likelihood of students who have been incarcerated for poverty-related crimes from returning to criminal behaviors by providing financial education.

These goals reflect the program’s commitment to empowering young individuals with the knowledge and skills necessary to succeed in entrepreneurship and personal finance.
