Metta World Peace comments on the partnership, “Financial literacy is so important and is not given enough attention in most homes or in most schools. I really love the curriculum GCFLF and Prince Dykes have put together, and we at Gradelo University are excited to help expose more kids and parents to these financial literacy lessons.”

GCFLF Founder Prince Dykes stated, “I’m excited for the opportunity to partner with an amazing organization that shares the same values as Global Children Financial Literacy Foundation and is equally dedicated to ensuring the success of the next generation.”


Gradelo University, formerly called Xcel University, was founded in September 2007 by NBA star Metta World Peace. Gradelo University believes there are three foundations needed to set our youth up for success: 1. Access to quality education and sufficient educational resources; 2. Good mental health; 3. An adequate level of physical activity along with healthy, nutritious food. These three foundations are the Pillars of Success and in the absence of one or more of these pillars, our youth will have less than an optimal chance of living up to their true potential.
