Founded in 2005, the WorldofMoney.org is a New York City based 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose mission is to empower youth with a sound financial foundation. Now more than ever this organization is needed to break a generational cycle and to change the way youth, SECTIONS: Young Moguls (ages 7 - 9); Rising Moguls (ages 10 - 12) and Moguls (ages 13 - 18), view money by equipping them with five tenets for a financially responsible and philanthropic life: learn, earn, save, invest and donate.
The organization was selected as a Promise Place by America's Promise Alliance and by AOL Impact as one of ten top social good organizations in America. WorldofMoney.org is acknowledged in President Obama's Advisory Council on Financial Capability Report. Having basic financial planning tools encourages youth to become family team players, maximize their longer-term financial well-being and to balance consumer and investor behaviors. The curriculum includes basic Mandarin Chinese, Excel, community service and year round alumni activities, including a Parent "Money Matters' Forum. In August 2013, we went on a Youth Educational Tour of three cities on mainland China and Hong Kong, and will return in July 2014. Join us in August 2015, when we celebrate our 10th anniversary in South Africa!
Youth urgently need to attend our Institute as the lack of financial education may lead to poor health, emotional anxiety, decreased quality of life, generational financial product victimization and lower college attainment levels.
