We want to help give youth a 'hand up' and not a 'hand out'
Edmonton, AB (PRWEB) August 9, 2008
On August 22-24, 2008, at University of Alberta Conference Centre, 100 teens (and their parents) will start businesses, take them public in a mock stock market and discover the amazing opportunities of real estate. Using games, activities, role-playing and more, this experiential event will give youth financial information and tools they can use immediately. Money RULES! Where Teens Have a Wealth of Fun, is a brand new financial education event inspired by the lack of financial education in the classroom and prompted by demand from parents everywhere. Kim Deep, founder of Kidz Make Cents and children's author, will bring youth and parents together to explore the ins and outs of creating financial freedom using the three pillars of wealth: business, real estate and the stock market. Students ages 13 - 17 will learn the skills they need to become great leaders, attain their goals and develop passive income streams so they can work because they want to, not because they have to. They will learn that having more money than they need allows them to do a whole lot of good in the world. "We want to help give youth a 'hand up' and not a 'hand out'," says Deep.
FOCUSING ON PRACTICAL MONEY MANAGEMENT WITH AN ACTIVE CURRICULUM
Money RULES! Where Teens Have a Wealth of Fun, teaches time-tested and immediately useful money management and wealth creation principles. Using accelerated teaching techniques, youth and their parents will explore cultural beliefs about money and life. The program teaches such basics as Pay yourself first, Put your money to work for you, You are the CEO of your own life and more. Helping others, while helping yourself, is the cornerstone of this life-changing program.
Adult financial seminars are everywhere. Now, there's finally a way to teach our youth about money!
"By creating a safe, family-oriented, fun-filled environment, we remove the taboos around money and begin to create generations of adults who think and make decisions like, people who value financial freedom over social status and stuff," says Deep, the founder of Kidz Make Cents Inc., an organization in Edmonton that offers fun financial literacy programs for children and families.
