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 train high school students to give the presentations. There is no better way for students to internalize the 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.
