Welcome to our series designed to help teens develop life skills and knowledge to transition to adulthood. We will have presenters on many topics the first Tuesday of every month, and our Winter/Spring series will run January – April.
Meet us in February for this presentation which will cover reasons to invest in the stock market, what is the stock market, mutual funds vs individual stocks, index funds vs. actively managed funds, mutual fund vs. ETF, investing expenses, IRA’s, 401(k), and how money invested in the stock market grows over time. The last part will show the students how they can start investing in the stock market today.
Our presenter is Dean Allen who was able to retire six years ago at the age of 51, due to wise financial decisions. He enjoys sharing with young people how it was he was able to accomplish that during presentations, so they can do well with money and retire someday. He speaks at local high schools, colleges, and libraries. He is the author of the book: Make Me Rich: The Path to Financial Freedom for Your High School / College Student which is available to be checked out from the local author collection at The Round Rock Public Library.
More information on his presentations can be found at his website.
