About ABL

The Academy of Business Leadership (ABL) empowers close to 200 students each summer and reaches over 15,000 students per year through workshops and presentations at hundreds of middle and high schools, community based organizations, and places of worship. Since 1998, ABL has touched the lives of over 2,900 ABL Summer Business and Leadership Institute (SBLI) graduates, and has reached almost 110,000 elementary, middle and high school students through workshops and presentations throughout Southern California.

In the 2008 biannual Jump$tart Coalition survey, high school students in all fifty states were asked 30 questions relating to money management, saving, investment, and credit. Of the students polled, 74% failed and 4.7% achieved a grade of "C" or higher.

In comparison, a 2011 survey of SBLI graduates, showed that:

  • After attending SBLI, there was an average increase of 246% in the number of students who believe they can now understand finance, investments, and the stock market.
  • After attending SBLI, there was an average increase of 287% in the number of students who believe they can now understand finance, investments, and the stock market.
  • There was an average increase of 245% in those who can now read and understand the Wall Street Journal as a result of their participation in SBLI.
  • There was an average increase of 40% in the number of students who felt that after SBLI they were able to manage their personal finances.
  • There was an average increase of 37% in students who do not see the lack of money as an obstacle to pursuing higher education after their participation in SBLI.
  • 99% of our participants say that they now understand the value of higher education and that college is now in their future.
  • 100% of our SBLI graduates graduated from high school, compared to the California state average of only 74.4% in 2010, as reported by the California Department of Education. Graduation rates for minority students are even lower: 51% for Blacks and 52% for Latinos.
  • According to a survey conducted in 2011, 99% of ABL alumni from 2004 and 2011 who have graduated from high school have gone on to college. In contrast, only 58% of students nationwide go onto college, according to the U.S. Census survey of 2006.
