Bigger Dreams, Bolder Future

Inspiring Young People to Dream Bigger, Act Boldly and Give Generously

UFSC MARK I - KC Fed Reserve

 

Urban Financial Services Coalition (UFSC) is proud to announce a very special fundraising campaign, “Bigger Dreams, Bolder Future” and to ask that you consider investing in our youth by making a donation to help us fund scholarships for outstanding participants of our two signature programs.  Our campaign goal is $5,000, by Friday July 29, 2017 and with your support, we are fully convinced that we can raise that amount!

UFSC is a group of minority financial professionals working together to provide professional development for its members; financial literacy to the community; and scholarships to young people who are interested in pursuing a career in the financial services industry.  In addition to promoting personal and professional growth within our industry, we collectively voice current concerns and marshal resources to improve the economic development of under-served communities.

Our two youth programs are dedicated to developing future leaders for the financial services industry – the UFSC MARK I Leadership Program and the Intercollegiate Oratorical Competition.

Outstanding participants of each program compete for a college scholarship.  Both programs have been highly successful and are very well-respected.

The UFSC MARK I Leadership Program is a one-year national apprentice challenge program that involves intensive classroom training; apprentice-style group competition; and the development and execution of an individual leadership development plan supported by on-going monthly leadership coaching sessions. We focus on specific areas of skill development that include personal leadership skills, financial literacy, business plan preparation, entrepreneurship and physical fitness.

The Intercollegiate Oratorical Competition is open to college students from around the country to give them an opportunity to showcase their oratorical and presentation skills before minority financial professionals and senior level executives. The winner will be celebrated as the Urban Financial Services Coalition Collegiate Orator of the Year.

We are proud of the many young people who have benefited from participating in UFSC programs and scholarships. Our underlying goal is to increase the number of minorities and women in senior management positions in the financial services industry. Young people from underserved communities face several obstacles, especially African American youth.
