We incorporated a crawl-walk-run concept that will apply to every student, no matter what socioeconomic background they come from. 


The crawling phase is where your student will learn about the financial information they need to know.  


The walking phase is where your student starts doing the research they need to do in order to make well informed decisions.


The running phase is where your student will take ACTION and DO the things they learned about. They will CREATE the financial systems they will use in real life.

This program not only teaches your student about finances, it walks them through setting everything up and helps them get started with a real financial system that works.
