Project X-it

Project X-it is an 18-month financial resiliency program that operates through incentivized goal plans and dual-generational financial curriculum to aid Head Start/ECEAP families to develop skills to create positive outcomes. 

All participating families must be enrolled in Opportunity Council Head Start/ECEAP programs with a qualifying three-year-old upon enrollment. Families are matched with volunteer mentors from the community who act as financial partners to help plan goals and celebrate success.  

 Our families and Mentors attend financial education classes together and are matched based on compatibility and goal focus. Financial learning and goal setting continue throughout the duration of the program, with an emphasis on participant driven curriculum.  

 Project X-it was designed in-house by the Opportunity Council and receives funding from agency programs, local grants, and support through community partners.
