Why Teach Kids About Money Now
A common complaint among teenagers, and even graduates, is that for all their schooling they never learned anything really practical about money and how to manage it.
Even parents struggle to teach the topic to their children. As one parent shared, “It was easier to teach my kids about the birds and the bees than to teach them about money.”
The truth of the matter is the average individual doesn’t know how to smartly manage their money.
This shortcoming is plainly evidenced by our growing household debt in the US, which hit an all-time high of $19.1 trillion in Q4 2020 and only getting bigger.
Teach Me Wall Street Boot Camps
Teach Me Wall Street’s classes are taught live, at the moment. This provides different energy because there’s a live person, with a real Wall Street background, there to answer all of your questions and offer guidance. In the virtual classroom, we have spirited discussions, and play educational games such as Kahoot and Quizlet. There are many apps and other games and puzzles we use to make the classes interactive and interesting. And that’s the beauty of a live class – because it makes the concepts real.
Boot camps are offered 2 hours a day M-F at 8-10 a.m. or 11 a.m.-1 pm. Students select the time that best fits their schedule and can alternate times when necessary.
