The Youth Financial Education Training Institute is a three week, intensive training which takes place during three Sessions each summer in the New York Tri-State area. A Money Track curriculum offers key topics such as budgeting, money management, investing, disciplined saving and responsible credit card usage. Parents may enroll their child for one, two or all three Sessions. Please see the home page for 2013 Session Dates and Tuition.
Throughout the training, youth interface with top financial experts, tour financial institutions, participate in a community day of service and real estate tours. In addition, youth have the rare privilege of presiding over the NASDAQ Opening or Closing ceremonies. Upon graduating with a Certificate of Completion, youth are eligible to enroll in our Youth Business School.
As part of the curriculum, youth tour the financial centers in our nation’s capital, Washington, DC. Planned visits include: The White House, Bureau of Engraving & Printing, the Capitol, Lincoln Memorial and the Financial Services Committee Room in the Rayburn House Office Building. Youth are taught the importance of philanthropy and that they must be the change they seek in the world.
