Moving Ahead

Moving Ahead

Moving Ahead is an Economic Empowerment Program that addresses the growing need to teach personal finance, digital skills, and job skills to young women in order to increase their financial independence and economic success.

The Allstate Foundation Moving Ahead Curriculum offers a range of information from basic money and financial management principles to advanced, long-term financial planning. This comprehensive package of tools and information is designed to empower women and victims of domestic violence to be self-sufficient with their finances. The goal of this program is to help victims of financial abuse and domestic violence overcome the challenges they may face in order to become financially independent.

The following are the topics covered in the curriculum:

  • Budgeting Saving Strategies
  • Loan and Housing Options
  • Investment and Insurance Overview
  • Credit Basics and Credit Repair

We offer workshops for domestic violence shelters, women’s shelters, and individuals outside of shelters.
