Provo, Utah (PRWEB) April 18, 2013
April is National Financial Literacy Month and Paragon Wealth Management, a national leader in the investment and wealth management field, is proud to announce their sponsorship of a new program on the “Concepts of Money” for an after school and summer initiative in Lehi, Utah.
The Renaissance Academy in conjunction with the Space EdVentures Foundation is launching the new ‘Fairpoint Institute,’ an education initiative that allows students to participate in various simulation laboratories offered after school and on Saturdays.
Paragon will be sponsoring the programs that will be offered for grades 5 through 8, as well as Investing SimLab on teaching the basics of investing in the markets. They will be sending some of their highly educated staff to help students gain the knowledge they need in order to succeed in life financially.
“We thought it to be a great opportunity to launch the program this month as it is also National Financial Literacy Month in April,” says Dave Young, President Founder of Paragon Wealth Management. “The younger the audience for this type of education, the better. We want the next generation to be as informed as possible as to how to handle their finances for their future.”
In the Concepts of Money class, students will learn how to budget, what credit and debit is, the basics of investing, taxes, what the Federal Reserve Bank is, exchange rates, supply and demand, competition and different economic systems. This class will also serve as a prerequisite to the Investing SimLab class. The class will be offered Tuesday, June 18th: 5pm – 6:30pm and Thursday, June 20th: 5pm – 6: 30pm.
Investing SimLab is a follow up class where students will learn the concepts of investing, the stock market, real estate, commodities, taxes, and the concepts of compound interest. The SimLab will be offered Wednesday, June 26th: 4pm – 6pm.
