What Do Students Learn?
Students answer three simple questions before and after a two-day Wealthy Habits financial literacy programs.
FINANCIAL LITERACY PROGRAMS FOR STUDENTS
Wealthy Habits is a great way for your student to spend a week this summer. Not only will your student have fun, but they will walk away with knowledge that will last a lifetime. We frame financial futures by allowing students to come to their own (guided of course) conclusion about money. Students don’t want to be told what they can and can’t do with their own money, but by making the curriculum fun and competitive, students want to learn more. By recruiting knowledgable college interns, we are able to make the use their relatability, commitment and passion to make a difference in the financial future of all Wealthy Habits’ students.
A full day from 9am-4pm with two curriculum options based on age to choose from as well as ten Atlanta locations. Cost is $345 for the week (early bird discounts available).
- Real Money Real Life (Ages 11-14)
- Move Out and Stay Out (Ages 14+)
Workshops are hosted by Wealthy Habits but are generally facilitated by experts in their field. The goal of these financial literacy programs is for you to learn as much as we can fit into the 2-3 hours the session is scheduled for as well as resources to learn more.
Cost for the workshops is $10/person and all fees are added to our summer camp scholarship fund.
- College & Career Planning
- Investing Introduction
- Managing Testing Stress
Our one-day programs are offered throughout the year and are an excellent introduction to what gives an individual financial freedom and a general understanding of what it takes to achieve Wealthy Habits. As with all of the Wealthy Habits financial literacy programs, the one-day sessions are taught through activities and focus on making the lessons relevant to students.
Sessions are from 9am-4pm for ages 11-15 & 15-18. One-day program fees are $40 per student for the full day.
Our two-day sessions are held during the summer and during longer school breaks. All topics covered during the one-day session will be covered with more detail than the single day.
Sessions are two consecutive days from 9am-4pm for ages 11-15 & 15-18. The program fee for both days is $75. Look for our sessions at the Federal Reserve Bank in Midtown during the summer months as this session also includes topics and tour of the Federal Reserve Bank.
We all must deal with our own personal finances no matter what career field we choose. Sadly, most of us aren’t provided with a thorough education on building good money habits before we make mistakes. While Georgia is one of the few states that requires a Personal Finance module as part of Social Studies, are these individuals teaching our students adequately prepared and more importantly do they get students excited about making smart financial decisions for their future?

Wealthy Habits has been providing unbiased, fun and relevant financial literacy programs since 2012. These financial literacy programs have touched more than 4000 students and have shown to be highly effective. Many students aren’t excited about “personal finance” when they arrive, but more than 90% of students leave glad they participated and excited to make better choices starting NOW (yes, even the middle schoolers). Wealthy Habits financial literacy programs cover GA Personal Finance Standards.
FOR ALL STUDENTS
The curriculum is presented in a format that most any student can understand; however, students should have basic math and reading skills appropriate for their age group. In order to create a fun and effective learning environment, students are expected to be respectful, have a good attitude and be willing to learn. We do understand that not all students will initially be thrilled with the idea of a personal finance class, but if they are generally good students our instructors will work their magic and get them excited to participate.
