ABOUT

At Money Matters for Youth, we believe that exposure to financial literacy can change lives.

Our students are investors because they are our investment in the future.

Youth Ages 8 – 18

Money Matters For Youth is a Detroit-based financial literacy program for children. Our mission is to teach children of all ages the basis of economics and financial responsibility though a five-day annual camp for youth “investors.”

All camp activities encourage financial awareness and literacy, goal setting, collaboration and personal presentation, while also teaching children the importance of diversity and of maintaining positive relationships.

The ultimate goal of Money Matters For Youth is to provide a program that is committed to fostering the social, emotional, and cognitive growth of young people while preparing them to have professional and personal success while giving back to their community.
