What You Will Learn in The Black Wealth Bootcamp
Business Education For Black Youth
One of the most critical factors in developing generational wealth is culture. When a community’s culture is conducive to the creation of productive financial habits, people tend to make better decisions, control their own destinies and raise children who are highly-empowered to be successful.
American public schools do not teach children even the most basic financial literacy, and this can lead to a lifetime of problems, including consistent unemployment, chronic amounts of debt, overspending, poverty and ongoing economic despair.
But these problems can be prevented by getting your child started early on the path to understanding money and investing, gaining a set of tools that will serve as the economic fuel for an empowered and liberated existence.
This course, led by Finance professor Dr Boyce Watkins, gives your child a chance to have a real college experience.
Dr Watkins explains numerous concepts in steady language that a child of any age can understand. By watching these videos along with your child, you will both get to hear America’s leading Finance scholar provide the blueprint for an economically prosperous existence.After you watch the videos, Dr Watkins provides a series of self-study quizzes that will allow you to test your child to ensure that they’ve memorized the concepts from the course.
One of the reasons for the wealth gap between the rich and the poor is very simple, and is consistently verified by scientific research: Wealthy people invest in the stock market, while middle class and poor people do not. So, the gap in wealth is also sustained by a gap in self-perception as well as a gap in strategy.
Black children are better prepared for the next generation if they are versed in the very basics of stock market investing and are equipped with the fundamental tools to seamlessly buy and sell shares without feeling the same hesitation that may have been felt by those of us who were raised to believe that the stock market is a place for rich people.
This isn’t true, since many shares of stock cost less than a pair of shoes. Our kids buy shoes all the time. So, teaching them to buy a share of stock is just as easy. In this course, we cover many of the fundamentals of stock market investing, explaining not only how to buy and sell shares of stock, but also the factors that move stock prices, as well as key terminology that is consistently used by those in the investment community.After your child completes this course, they will be well on their way to having a level of financial savvy that will make you proud and also heighten their self-esteem.
We even take them on a virtual field trip where they can learn how to buy their first share of stock. Let’s get started on this journey together.
