Rachel Labi

Co-Founder - Building Financial Freedom

Rachel Labi is the co-founder of Building Financial Freedom, an organization that develops financial literacy programs for youth. As she discusses her journey from advocating for mandatory personal finance education in Indiana to founding Building Financial Freedom she builds a strong case for the necessity of systemic changes in financial education, and not leaving the responsibility solely to parents.

We talk about what it’s like to build an organization at such a young age – she is still a college student. She emphasizes the importance of democratic leadership, strategic networking, and adaptability. Specifically, she talks about how she used internships to align organizational goals with the career aspirations of peers, and went to a model that partners with outside organizations and corporations to fund the development of the content.
