Each K-8 intern will learn the value of working for and saving a dollar in the Xposure Science, Technology, Finance and Employment After-School Institute.
Interns must save at least 50% of their weekly earnings/stipend in a custodial savings account they open (under the guidance of a parent) and maintain at a local bank. Interns take regular trips to the bank to deposit earnings and sharpen their financial skills.
Interns also learn about and begin investing a portion of their earnings into their very own custodial investment stock portfolio!! Many of the K-8 interns already own shares of companies like McDonald's, NIKE, APPLE, GOOGLE, etc.
Executive Director and Founder Raymond L. Thomas Jr. states, "Financial literacy is a must in all communities for all children if we are to break the shackles of just being consumers. Children must be empowered to own companies, manufacture goods and begin saving and investing for their futures. Children with the help of forward thinking adults must take charge of their destiny."
