Nationwide — Black Wallstreeter Consultation Services is now offering a financial literacy curriculum for youth. The primary purpose of the curriculum is to provide financial education and discipline at an early age, thereby possibly decreasing the wealth gap for future generations. The curriculum is titled Junior Wallstreeters: Empowering Youth with Financial Wellness.
Wallstreeter’s curriculum is very different compared to other financial literacy lessons. Their lessons will provide the following: 1) an introduction to financial literacy concepts; 2) tools on starting and running an investment club; and 3) investing in the stock market. One of the lessons will incorporate Kevon and Kamari Chisolm’s ebook titled Financial Legacy: Building Wealth Through Investment Clubs.
The inclusion of the investment club portion is the main difference of their curriculum. In this section, they teach students to apply the financial information by investing in the stock markets. Students learn how to become investors in some of the popular brands that they currently use including Nike, Timberland and McDonalds. The curriculum is currently being used at Vance High School in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Next summer, Black Wallstreeter Consultation Services is planning on offering Junior Wallstreeter Camps, which will use the same curriculum mentioned above.
For additional information about incorporating this curriculum in your classroom, after school program or if you have a location for a summer camps, please contact Kevon L. Chisolm, Esq. at 571-236-1471 or visit www.theblackwallstreeter.com.
