Financial literacy summer camp

Financial Literacy Summer Camp

Money and finance are an inevitable part of everyone’s lives but we tend to delay this conversation with kids until it’s too late.

This fun, interactive, and game-based course will introduce children to the fundamental understanding of the barter system and the evolution of currency. Students will also learn about the differences between needs and wants. Concepts of budgeting and taxes will be introduced to underscore the significance of expense management. Various active and passive sources of income will be discussed. The concept of investing will be introduced concerning fundamental behavioral patterns such as delayed gratification and long-term thinking.

Students will do a comprehensive final project where they will propose a framework for maximizing their future income stream.
