“One of our goals is to change the level of poverty in the city and its generational poverty,” Domb said. “And one of the best tools of changing that is through financial literacy pre-K to 12th grade. It’s not going to happen overnight, but over the next 10–15–20 years, by teaching financial literacy, we will break generational poverty.” Thanks to the Northeast Times for covering the financial literacy lessons being taught to 2nd and 3rd graders (and beyond) at Hancock Elementary. Councilman Domb is proud to sponsor Philadelphia school teachers to take the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia program that helps teachers incorporate financial literacy lessons into their curriculum.

Councilman Domb is proud to see Esora and Daniel, students from the Career and Technical Education program at Benjamin Franklin High School (Philadelphia), starting their 5-week internships with PRDC Properties LLC, working on re-developing the Heid building at 13th & Wood into apartments. Councilman Domb encouraged PRDC CEO David Perlman to offer internships for Philadelphia public school students as the company works for a year and a half to convert the former hat factory into more than 100 apartments. Domb regularly reminds local business owners that they should provide internships to current students and hire graduating students from Philadelphia's public schools. “We need qualified people,” said Domb. “So why not use own and teach our own — from Philadelphia, born and raised in Philadelphia — to work in the companies in Philadelphia.”
