Credit Do is a nonprofit that provides a means for middle and high school students to save for college through community engagement. We do this through our 2-week, in-school Smarter Barter programs where in exchange for doing 1 day of community service, students earn store credit to businesses that provide life essentials. With each additional purchase students receive a cash back to offset college debt. The benefits of our Smarter Barter platform is community-wide.
