Founded in 2005, the WorldofMoney.org is a New York City based 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose mission is to empower youth with a sound financial and technology education. WorldofMoney.org is acknowledged in President Obama's Advisory Council on Financial Capability Report. Over 3,000 youth, ages 7 – 18, and their families have been provided with the needed financial education to break a generational cycle and to change the way youth, view money by equipping them with five tenets for a financially responsible and philanthropic life: learn, earn, save, invest and donate. Our Financial Presenters have included many stellar Wall Street professionals, business and legal leaders.
The WorldofMoney.org provides youth with the curriculum to survive economic cycles, by examining their own money mindsets. In addition, students learn the history of money, budgeting, saving, compound interest, stock market, mutual funds, commodities, credit, insurance, advertising, trusts, wills, consumer finance, business communication, entrepreneurship, real estate ownership, Mandarin Chinese and philanthropy. Our curriculum encourages our students to set financial legacies and make sound decisions to balance consumer and investor behaviors. The curriculum also includes Excel, community service and year round alumni activities, including a Parent "Money Matters" Forum.
The 2014 Institute graduated 172 youth; 65% African-American and Latino boys and 35% girls. The organization was selected as a Promise Place by America's Promise Alliance and by AOL Impact as one of ten top social good organizations in America. For adults, we produce "Access Granted" economic summits in Manhattan and on Martha's Vineyard featuring major Thought Leaders from financial and business sectors. In August 2013 and 2014, we toured three cities on mainland China and Hong Kong. In 2015, the organization will commemorate our 10th anniversary in South Africa.
