The Youth Academy is in its fourth year of operations, and serves as an after-school financial literacy and investing program & summer youth business camp.
Within its programs, students learn basic financial principles about money as well as financial concepts and investing strategies that generally are not taught in school.
Students that successfully complete the after-school program, at selected host schools, receive a $500 scholarship towards college, or towards starting a business in the event that they choose not to attend college. However, this aspect of the Academy is briefly on hold due to the pandemic, but we expect it to resume soon.
The Youth Academy generally hosts RKC during the summer months for youth ages 8 to 12, along with its summer youth business camp for ages 13 to 18. Its online program is now available, worldwide, year-around, and will soon be developed in other languages.
