3rd Decade works to build successful financial futures by offering access to free high-quality financial education, training and support. Founded by Bob Swift in 2016, 3rd Decade has served more than 1,000 young adults through its two-year financial literacy program, which is open to 18- to 35-year-olds with an individual income of less than $75,000 or a household income of less than $120,000. The program has multiple components, including 10 hours of personal financial education on topics such as budgeting, debt, savings, taxes and insurance; mentorship, where participants are connected with financial professionals and together work to create and implement a personal financial plan; and a $1,000 contribution into a Roth IRA upon completion of the program.

Bob Swift was compelled to create 3rd Decade’s robust curriculum and implement programming in order to change financial futures for the better, starting right now. Bob believes that once young people have the tools and support to secure their financial futures, positive change will ripple throughout their communities. Thanks to Bob’s vision, leadership and financial support, the organization is scaling nationally and demand for programming continues to grow amongst individuals in their third decade of life.
