PITTSBURGH -- Only 15 percent of school districts in Pennsylvania require students to take a personal finance course, according to Cents Ability, a nonprofit working to provide financial resources to high school students across the country.

The organization - based in New York City - was founded in 2004 by two Harvard University graduates, Alexa DuPont and John Moore, who realized they needed help managing their own money. Cents Ability began providing financial tools to teens in the New York City public school system and low-income communities.

Once established, Cents Ability set loftier goals, and with the help of volunteers can now provide financial education for school districts across the country.
