Financial Literacy and Investing Summer Camps for Youth
(Black PR Wire) Junior Wallstreeters, Inc., a non-profit organization, is excited to offer an online summer camp for young people. The camp is great for preventing learning loss and provides a fun environment for students to learn financial and investing concepts.
The camps will teach students lifelong financial education skills and discipline through 10 lessons with an emphasis on African American history and culture. Chisolm, Executive Director of Junior Wallstreeters, Inc says, “In addition to topics such as budgeting, banking, and stock market investing, our camp goes above and beyond by exploring community wealth building through clubs. of investment. “Simply put,” says Chisolm, “our goal is to teach financial literacy to close the wealth gap by showing young people how to properly use money as a tool. According to a recent McKinsey & Company report, the average median family wealth for African American households is $24,000 to $164,000 for white family households. These camps are not just for African Americans but for all underserved communities.
A parent whose child participated last summer wrote:
Dear Mr Chisolm,
Thank you for offering this camp to young people. My son has acquired a lot of useful information that he has already started to apply. He opened a savings account yesterday at a credit union and asked them a lot of questions about interest, types of loans, etc., which I know was a direct result of being in this class.
In addition to the Financial and Investment Literacy Camp, Junior Wallstreeters offers the following: 1) Introduction to Cryptocurrency and NFTs; and 2) Introduction to real estate investing and advanced investment clubs.
