Welcome to Wealthy Habits
Are you looking for a program that is both fun and educational? Wealthy Habits has financial literacy programs and camps for middle and high schoolers that both you and your student will love.
Programs and camps engage students in critical thinking about everything from budgeting to risk management. The end-goal is for students to walk away with a heightened curiosity and a feeling of urgency to make smart life and financial decisions. Feedback from parents and students have shown that these programs do make a difference. Participation to-date (since 2012) is as follows:
- 618 students participated in the summer camp
- 2440 students participated in the 1 or 2-day program
- 1239 students participated in a program less than 6 hours
Full one and two-day programs are a great introduction to building Wealthy Habits and are scheduled throughout the year for middle and high school groups.
Do you have a group of students that you feel would benefit from learning Wealthy Habits. We would love the opportunity to discuss the needs of your group and how we can make a difference in their financial future.
In partnership with the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta, Wealthy Habits has developed a teacher’s guide based on its two-day program. Teacher training sessions are held to assist teachers in understanding the curriculum and how best to deliver the material in an effective manner.
Past years have shown continuous growth both in student participation and in programs offered. The expectation for the coming years is no different. The five-day CAMPS are the core summer focus as they are exceedingly popular. Focusing on shorter PROGRAMS and program REQUESTS during the school year will ensure the organization reaches as many students as possible. The new TEACHER TRAINING will provide teachers with the tools to bring financial literacy to their classrooms in a fun impactful way.

Smiling ear to ear…
My daughter and her friend really enjoyed the program!
Teens don’t get excited about much, but they were smiling
from ear to ear when I picked them up.
Thank you so much for this opportunity.
