Organization Equips, Empowers, and Educates Youth About Financial Literacy Through Day Camp
Fort Worth, TX, April 18, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- On the heels of the Great Recession, many young people coming of age over the next decade will need to face difficult financial questions. In the interest of preparing more of today’s youth for adulthood of fiscal responsibility and creative wealth management, an organization that offers financial literacy training through camps will be reaching out to teens at a local high school.
Camp Millionaire, organized by Mindset Matters Inc., is an innovative day camp that teaches kids how to make, manage and multiply their money. The camp relies on interactive games, activities, and field trips to help kids learn basic financial principles, such as stepping up to become the CEO of one’s own life, paying yourself first and investing in the three pillars of wealth (stocks, real estate, and business) to produce passive income for one’s future.
For Financial Literacy Month this April, Mindset Matters Inc. is partnering with Catholic Charities Fort Worth to bring the Camp Millionaire program to the students of Cassata High School, a private, Roman Catholic school in Fort Worth.
Camp Millionaire’s programs, workshops and activities were developed to educate, equip, and empower children on the importance of having great credit, financial stability and how to live a socially acceptable lifestyle. The more young people learn about credit, financial and social skills, the more likely they are to save and invest in their own future without the dependency of others. Studies have shown Financial and Social Education foster stability for individuals, families, and entire communities.
Because the team at Mindset Matters know the adults in a child’s life model good (or bad) financial behavior to their kids, they also offer programs for adults. Once enlightened, they can help to reinforce the information provided to their children, and continue the good financial and social habits they learn for generations to come.
