Our mission is to teach youth how to adopt a mindset of financial wellness.

Our vision, youth will live a healthy financial lifestyle.

 

Problem:

Youth are often excluded from conversations and decision making around money. It is rare that schools offer curriculum's on money management and in most households, money is considered an adult topic. The $mart Investors Club was created in 2018 to address the wealth and income disparities that exist among minority and low income families living in Baltimore City. Studies indicate that African American youth lag behind other ethnic groups in financial knowledge, income, and generational wealth. Youth that receive formal financial education tend to have better financial security and habits in adulthood (Kasman, Heuberger, & Hammond, 2018). 

Project Summary:

The goal of the $mart Investors Club is to educate youth participants about financial wellness and responsible uses of money. Our program allows youth to develop a healthy outlook and learn strategies to improve the outcomes. Through discussion and hands-on activities, youth will walk away from our program with the tools to make informed financial decisions.
