My two sons have done this program and have enjoyed the very different hands on activities. I have taught the program in Beijing China as an after school activity and very often parents would come repeatedly and thank me for what their kids were learning. I have taught this program to counselors and teachers from 2 International schools in Beijing and they have also taught it as an after school program. My kids are using the skills they have learned. They are getting weekly allowance and are doing a great job in saving, spending and sharing. They have truly understood the concept of money management taught to them. I have had friends also who have bought the package as a christmas gift and they were very happy with the results. I highly recommend the program. It is easy to teach and an easy and fun way to learn.

How children can learn money management while enjoying the time spent on it, see and feel what is being said, and most importantly learn it through character development. My children have enjoyed learning from this program and they are doing a better job in saving, spending, helping. thank you.

Hello, My name is Miranda Hazard. I attended the course with my fiance Joe Garrett and his son Dejour Garrett who is 12 years old. I believe the course helped me with financial planning. It helped help to understand what it means to save, invest, etc. I am a work in progress and feel like I could learn so much more. I never knew how to balance a checkbook.
I appreciated the information learned and how it tied into families and personal enrichment. It was a great experience for me and I hope that the program is continued for others to experience what I did and what my family did. Thank you Mr. Alex Mazloom and Mind Treasures.

I would just say that I wish the program was longer. I also would like to see more detailed information regarding the different categories or subjects learned.

This program is great!!! Not only my son enjoyed going to this class I can see that my son's confidence level has gone up. I am so glad that he joined this program because now he is aware of making better financial decision such as saving, building credit score and basics of managing money which will all come in handy in his future. I definitely recommend MInd Treasure :)

It has been a pleasure to have the opportunity to work with Mind Treasures. Not only does this agency embraces the mission of providing excellent financial literacy to underserved youth but they have expanded the concept of education and have developed a unique curriculum combining character development with financial literacy, in order to raise our future generations to become financially stable and independent. The curriculum is taught by incorporating the foundation of values by focusing on developing key character traits such as patience, responsibility, moderation, thankfulness, selflessness, generosity and truthfulness. This development is complemented by learning the goal setting, decision making, borrowing and budgeting processes.

I've had the opportunity to volunteer in an after-school program curriculum they teach, ABC's of Wealth and it was truly a life experience for me.

They have been a partnering agency of the San Diego City-County Reinvestment Task Force and they have continously have seeked opportunities to coordinate efforts with community agencies and schools in San Diego and we are currently working on a collaborative effort in bringing Financial Education to the Schools in San Diego, especially those located in lower-income communities.

This program helped me get out of debt. I was in debt not from splurging on items I couldn’t afford but from simply not having sufficient income. Mind Treasures helped me find the best ways to 1) lower the interest rates and 2) pay it off completely. My life is certainly less stressful from having taken advantage of this program!

I was able to get completely out of debt in just a few years time. Yes, sacrifices on my part but the relief makes it all worthwhile.

Mind Treasures has tapped into a real 'gold-mind', if you will, meaning that it empowers us to re-'think' about the energy of money and how the ethereal effects that we call VIRTUES -kindliness, compassion, generosity, creativity - can change our lives by the way we apply this 'entity'. Money has a reputation that it is evil. Well, after attending Mind Treasures workshop, I have a more uplifting perspective of it...and that is the VIRTUEs aspect of money- which was missing in my life. The time is right --as Mind Treasures is teaching our younger generation (the seed) about this philosophy so that as our world continues to progress, a new 'mindset'/gold-mind will grow, and our world will develop into an economy that will be universally balanced. I am gradually getting out of debt...the first step for me. Our country is so in need of Financial Literacy. Wish I had it in my early days of parenting-- but I can teach my grandchildren!

The results for me is that I am definitely less wasteful and more conscientious about recycling. And internally for me I now think differently: I don't feel that I "NEED" to have "THIS" or "THAT". As in nature...it never takes more than it needs.

Not sure right now what it needs. Maybe show more children videos that have applied these changes.

I have seen the results of this organization. In this time of financial turmoil, it provides a reminder of what is most important (virtues and their application) and practical process to achieve wealth and prosperity - in the deepest meaning of the words. No other financial literacy program does this. It needs to be funded more, so that it can expand and reach more individuals and families.

I would like to take the time and thank Mind Treasures for all of the hard work that they due in the community to help lift people out of financial oppression. I feel fortunate to have been able to work with this program and I highly recommend them for anyone who needs assistance with learning about financial literacy through a humanistic, hands-on , tangible manner. Not only is Mind Treasures assisting with financial literacy but creating opportunities through strong community building by utilzing program graduates to assist in their communities with helping children to learn to read and learn more comprehensive math skills so that they can benefit from an early start in their own financial literacy. Thank you Mind Treasures for giving so much to the communities that you work in and for helping to life the oppression of financial burdens.

We really appreciated the opportunity to send our child to an after school program, Mind Treasures, teaching and promoting an understanding of financial awareness and tips to navigating responsibly in the world of money at a young age. We still use the piggy bank box with a section for share, spend, save. It's wonderful to have a community resource such as this program and we would highly recommend it to others. Thank you Alex!

I just recently attended a workshop presented by Alex Mazloom, co-founder, Mind Treasures. The information he presents is excellent! The information he presented is something humanity can use to help bring out our virtues and truly make this a world that we can live in prosperity, spiritual happiness, and overall well being. I don't think that our economic situation would be in the condition it is if we had these values in place.
