I AM MADE TO EXCEL
Destined For Greatness
MADE 2 Excel wants to spread our message of financial literacy for youth to change future generations. We believe that a single action can make a difference in the community, and that collective action can greatly impact the underserved communities of the south and west sides of Chicago. Through advocacy and outreach activities, our team works tirelessly each day to contribute their part to the greater good.
MADE 2 Excel is a Chicago based non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of young African American males through financial literacy programs. We educate, inspire and cultivate healthy financial habits and knowledge for youth into adulthood.
WHAT WE DO
Furthering our cause of Financial Literacy is the most important goal of our organization. We seek to support, empower, and provide high quality resources to our community in a safe and secure environment. Our success isn’t measured in terms of wealth or profit margin, but by the value we provide to those we serve.
