What Do Students Learn?

Students answer three simple questions before and after a two-day Wealthy Habits program.

PROGRAMS FOR STUDENTS

SUMMER CAMPS

A great way for your student to spend a week this summer. Not only will your student have more fun than they expect to have, but they will walk away with knowledge that will last a lifetime.

A full day from 9am-4pm with three curriculum options to choose from as well as six Atlanta locations. Three age groups starting at age 11. Cost is $345 for the week (early bird discounts available).

Camp Options:

  • Camp Wall Street –  (Investing)
  • Move Out & Stay Out –  (Adulting)
  • Think Tank to Shark Tank –  (Entrepreneurship)

WORKSHOPS

Workshops are hosted by Wealthy Habits but are generally facilitated by experts in their field. The goal of the session 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.

Topics Covered:

  • College & Career Planning
  • Investing Introduction
  • Managing Testing Stress
  • Entrepreneurship

ONE-DAY PROGRAMS

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 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.

TWO-DAY PROGRAMS

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.

I don’t know what the difference was — just more time or the counselors or mix of students or just the difference in my two kids. In any case, I think this program is outstanding.

  • “This was a good platform to spark an interest for learning about money matters.” Sat, Jul 22nd 2017
  • “My main comment is that I had difficulty on the first day getting my kids to camp. It would have been nice if their were camp counselors and signs outside on 11th Street to meet parents and escort the entire group into building (or something to that effect). Since I was unable to figure out how to drop them off after circling the entire block, I had to go to the guard shack and have my vehicle thoroughly searched, give them my id, everyone’s name in the car, license plate number, etc. in order to drop them off. This made the kids late for camp. Also, the officers were the ones who told me where to go to pick them up. The pick-up location wasn’t very clear to me either when I registered. I was a few minutes late the second day picking up (due to traffic) and I was thankful the camp counselors stayed outside with my kids until I got there!” Sat, Jul 22nd 2017

  • “My son is a heading off to college in a few weeks. I am thinking there are no other classes offered through Wealthy Habits that will be appropriate for him when he is home for the holidays or summer. If there is a class for college students/young adults that would reinforce what was covered in the 2 day class, I would very much me interested in being contacted about it! mvscott5@hotmail.com My son seemed to enjoy the 2 day class. I’m glad he was exposed to this material. I wish there were a way to reinforce it/ review it, etc.. I also wish I had learned about these classes years ago so he could have taken them over several years and really gotten a solid grasp on the material and even put some of it to work.” Fri, Jul 21st 2017
  • “Even though my son was not happy that I made him go to “school” over the summer, he admitted that it wasn’t as bad as he thought it would be. This is a huge win! While he did not share a lot about what he learned, the daily summaries were very helpful and I enjoyed reading about what they did in class. He also said the instructors were very good, again, a huge compliment to the instructors! Well done! I think this is a great opportunity for kids to learn about money management.” Fri, Jul 21st 2017

She learned a lot and was reminded of many of the things her father and I have spoken/taught her about money/investments/credit. Overall we found value in the camp. However, I will share my concern about participants/students not adhering to the rules concerning talking and other disruptive actions. I would like to make the suggestion that you enforce calling parents/removing those students that do not follow the rules of conduct. I understand that 2 students did not return back to this camp after the 1st day. My daughter found it difficult at times to concentrate because of the disruptive campers. Despite the above mentioned – my daughter enjoyed the camp and we look forward to the next one.” Mon, Jun 19th 2017

Overall, I’m glad it was offered and will continue to share with friends.” Mon, Jun 19th 2017

PERSONAL FINANCE

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?

LESSONS

Wealthy Habits has been providing unbiased, fun and relevant programs since 2012. These 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 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.
