What We Do
The Extra Mile Academy (TEMA) gives financial literacy presentations on topics such as budgeting, credit, and investing. What makes us different is we work with high school students through college graduates to teach them how to develop relationships through educating others which will serve them well throughout their business careers. There is no better way for students to internalize information than to teach it to others. Our students are called Ambassadors. We also offer career exploration opportunities for our Ambassadors. We work to set up mock interviews, job shadows, and internships in the fields of their choice. We do not charge the schools, students, or parents for our programs. We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit and are fully funded by grants and donations.
