Target demographics: Middle School Students
Programs: Financial Literacy: We believe IT'S TIME we get started early with financial education. Our Financial Literacy program explores investment concepts in a fun and exciting way. We believe children learn best when they are active participants in the classroom. Our curriculum structure facilitates students gaining hands-on experience with investment fundamentals. Upon completing the program, our students will understand day-to-day financial matters and begin to understand the workings of basic economic principles. Speak Up: There are few professions where the star performers are not required to speak in front of large groups or make important presentations. Our oratory program prepares our students with communication skills now so that they may apply these critical behaviors both academically and professionally in the future. IT’S TIME to start teaching young people how to present and market their abilities. Each week we tackle a different oratory skill utilizing methods ranging from debating key issues to reciting famous works of poetry. With practice and recital, students will become more confident in their abilities to communicate effectively. Inspiration: Our Power Lunch series is the cornerstone of our program offerings. At the start of the program, all students are required to write a brief essay as to their career preferences; those responses are given priority consideration in the selection of guest speakers. In an effort to expand their aspirations and make their dreams more tangible, the program provides for weekly interaction with people from varied professions.

I give exceptional rating to the ITSTIME staff. They show their interest in the children by their actions. Calling as reminders for the parents concerning the ITSTIME sessions, progamming, etc. However, my favorite was the Debatc Contest. That session was superb. It hope that they will be able to do that again.
