School Without Walls at Francis Stevens Launches Millionaire’s Club
The FedChoice Charitable Foundation celebrated the 75th Anniversary of International Credit Union Day by sponsoring a Millionaire’s Club, a comprehensive personal finance program developed by the Credit Union Foundation of Maryland and DC, at School Without Walls at Francis Stevens (SWWFS) in Washington, DC.
The SWWFS students now have a new, engaging resource for developing their personal financial skills while enjoying competitions with other students locally, statewide, and across the nation.
“We are very excited and proud to launch the Millionaire’s Club at School Without Walls at Francis Stevens,” said Brett Noll, FedChoice Charitable Foundation’s Board Chair. “It’s extremely rewarding to see the participating students gain both financial skills and confidence that will help them succeed in life.”
The Millionaire’s Club is a complete financial skills program designed for delivery at the middle and high school levels. Clubs are provided with seed grants, detailed 26- lesson curriculum, and faculty/student materials at no charge. Clubs are also provided with entry into national competitions such as The Stock Market GameTM and The Personal Finance ChallengeTM. Additional support materials add a fun, competitive edge to the Club’s activities. Other Millionaire’s Clubs have produced State and National Personal Finance Challenge champions as well as first-place Stock Market GameTM competitors.
As the Club’s sponsor, FedChoice Charitable Foundation will provide guest speakers on topics such as identity theft, selecting a financial institution, credit, lending, etc. while the core curriculum is delivered by professional educators either in class or after school. Club members elect their own leadership, actively engage in the program, and conduct an annual entrepreneurial project that allows Club members to put into practice their new financial skills while ensuring the Club’s future.
