Building Skills for Jobs of the Future

According to the Association of American Colleges & Universities*, over 70 percent of employers indicated recent graduates don’t have the durable skills required to be job ready – including complex problem solving, critical thinking, communication and collaboration.


Students living in underserved communities have limited access to educational programs and resources that prepare them for the job market of the future and contribute to their financial success. Intuit is committed to leveling the playing field to better prepare people for the job market by bringing real-world tools into classrooms to help students develop personal finance skills and an entrepreneurial mindset.

Personal Finance Skills and an Entrepreneurial Mindset

Through direct and partner-driven programs, Intuit offers courses like design thinking known as Design for Delight (D4D), personal finance simulations, entrepreneurship challenges and educator training to teach the skills students need to build a successful career. Intuit is using its unique resources and assets to prepare people for jobs through the development of critical thinking, communication, teamwork, leadership and personal finance skills.

Investing in School Districts

Intuit expanded its Prosperity Hub School District program in FY21 through the launch of our Digital Equity Initiative to address students’ unequal access to technology and resources to support remote learning models during the pandemic. The program now includes 21 school districts across nine countries with a combined enrollment of more than 1.6 million students. Each district was selected based on two key criteria: economic need and diversity of the student body. Nearly 80 percent of students in these districts identify as being underrepresented minorities. Through the Digital Equity Initiative, these districts received combined donations of US$1.1 million that have been used to purchase devices like laptops and hotspots, as well as hire additional teaching staff and IT management. These grants were also used to support underrepresented minority students in the Toronto District School Board through their Centre for Black Student Excellence.

Congressional Award Foundation’s Financial Literacy Program

Intuit became a founding corporate partner of the Congressional Award Foundation’s (CAF) Diversity & Inclusion Initiative, resulting in an online Financial Literacy Program to support promoting financial health for students of diverse economic and social backgrounds. The program helps young people take ownership of their financial futures through education, real-life applications and giving back to their community by volunteering. To date, more than 1,800 young people, ages 13-23, have enrolled in the program.

Reaching More Students Through Educational Partnerships

Only one in 13 students in underserved schools have access to personal finance curriculum in the U.S. Of those that do have access, the curriculum often found in many of today’s schools lacks access to the latest real-world, financial tools available for informed personal finance decision making. Intuit partners with a number of financial and entrepreneurial educational organizations around the world to offer real-world tools that more effectively prepare students by giving them hands-on experience with tools they will utilize in the workplace.
