FAC Lawrence

Lawrence Froymovich

FOUNDER & INSTRUCTOR

Lawrence is an ambitious 17 year old high school senior, originally from Brooklyn, NY. Over the years, he’s developed a love for giving back to society and mentoring those around him. He is grateful of his school’s financial literacy requirement. But many schools lack financial literacy. A volunteer at the Nassau County Peer Diversion Court, he was eventually propelled to develop an outreach program that uses financial literacy as a means of preventing crime in youth. When he pitched his idea to the Nassau County District Attorney’s Office, he became inspired to incorporate his community outreach organization “Fin$marts Against Crimes (FAC)” as a 501(c)(3) non-profit. Lawrence aims to study applied economics undergrad, particularly the intersection of business and public policy. In his free time, he enjoys playing jazz trumpet, the piano, and hanging out with his friends.
