Changing the Odds

We at Green Dot are committed to investing in our team and ultimately in our communities. As we traverse the year together, I would like to keep fresh for all of us some simple goals to ground us in the work of changing the odds for the students we serve. You will notice a great deal of support and energy going into ensuring we meet these goals by 2020.
