The 100 BMOA Host 10-Week Hands on Banking and Junior Investment Workshops for Students

Through our partnership with the 100 Black Men of America, Wells Fargo, and SIFMA Foundation, the 100 Black Men of Austin has kicked off our financial literacy workshops during our Saturday Leadership Academy. With the support of Wells Fargo, the Hands on Banking and Junior Investment workshops hosted 20 outstanding youth from the Austin community! Here’s a glimpse into what we’ve been up to:

Hands on Banking: Our young leaders dove headfirst into financial literacy, exploring topics like budgeting, saving, and smart spending. From interactive activities to real-life scenarios, they’re building a strong foundation for their financial futures!

Junior Investment: Investing may seem daunting, but not for our driven participants! Through engaging discussions and hands-on simulations, they’re learning the ins and outs of investments, setting goals, and making informed decisions to secure their financial well-being.  The SIFMA Foundation provided the platform, fictitious $100,000 for our students to select, invest, buy, and sell stock over the 10 week period.

Community Impact: Beyond the classroom, our workshops are fostering a supportive environment where youth empower each other, share ideas, and grow together. These connections are invaluable and inspire us all to reach new heights!

We’re immensely proud of the dedication and enthusiasm shown by our youth, and we can’t wait to see them continue to flourish in the coming weeks! Stay tuned for more updates as we embark on this empowering journey together.
