Real-world investing is at the heart of this exciting program. High school juniors and seniors meet monthly to learn about stocks, bonds, real estate, debt versus equity, and much more. They are shown how to open investment accounts with their parents, pick stocks to invest in, track their gains and losses, and make buying and selling decisions.

Knowledge is power. Through the KIPP Investment Club, we are teaching finance and investing skills that will pay dividends for a lifetime, and empowering youth to build a more secure financial future to achieve their goals.
