Skillz of Life is a community center/library-based, 4-8 week long program that introduces underserved teens ages 11-17 to financial, wealth and personal management skills. Our mission is to ensure that every teenager has the skills necessary to build their own businesses, navigate the stock market, invest in property, responsibly manage money and build a thriving community. Participants will work individually, in teams and as a group to build, grow and become financially empowered.
Through engaging games and lectures students will learn about real estate, investment, money management, job etiquette, entrepreneurship and more. Participants will meet with expert stock investors, wealth/money management investors, real estate investors, entrepreneurs, cryptocurrency gurus, tax preparers and time management professionals who will them share their formulas for success and the fundamentals of their areas of expertise. Each participant will gain a strong foundation and knowledge of making their money and time work for them, thereby creating a new generation of risk takers, entrepreneurs and financially empowered teens.
