Can students help create a class full of millionaires?
Each year, millions of people are crushed by the burden of debt. Millions more are empowered by the miracle of savings and investment. In this project, students will learn the essentials of financial literacy—and use those skills for good by getting high school students “interested” in making smart financial decisions. Watch as your students form meaningful relationships while coaching teens on important money management skills.
Imagine if kids could help themselves and others make smart financial decisions. The skills they learn today could build solid habits to last a lifetime!
