The MockStockTrading Program has now been adopted by SoLa and Horizons
Henry Benton created and facilitated a program for underprivileged kids ages 7-15 with no prior investment experience. Through a weekly series of classes via video, in person interactions, and shared content Henry taught the kids about stock market basics, and set them up a virtual trading floor.
Mock Stock Challenge Launch Day Los Angeles
Arranged whole program to teach financial literacy to rising freshmen. This ranged from budgeting to careers in investing and how one gets there.
Due to COVID-19 I had to readjust my program so that it was all digital. This meant canceling the field-trip that I had to Bankwell and digitizing all the speakers. I created a trading system for them to use and accounts for each person.
