Mind Treasures is like a beautiful flower in the blooming process. It is a program that tenderly nurtures our sensative areas with rich teachings of life's most important and needed disciplines. It teaches how to take from life what is essential for healthy growth as each blossom must depend on for beauty and stregnth. Mind Treasures teaches each student how to give back to thier community and to society in general, a generous portion of love with a spiritual twist that is contageous and promotes peace. It thrives in children as their learning roots are hungry for the proper food; but it works for adults that are anxious to contribute in a way that benefits all. Mind Treasures is over the top in uniting quality humans.

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.

In my job, at home, and I am preparing myself for my upcoming marriage.

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.

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 met with the staff and learned about Mind Treasures' activities.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Fund it so that it could expand more quickly.

As a 30 year community child advocate, I was curious about Mind Treasures. I met Alex when I volunteered at one of his classes. I was so impressed with the project, I had to learn more. Not only do they teach children about finance, they integrate essential life values as part of the learning experience. I wanted to be part of the program, so I attended a semimar designed to educate participants on Mind Treasures instructional techniques. I had a wonderful time! The newfound knowledge I took away from the class is priceless! I strongly suggest all parents and children participate in the mind Treasures program! Thank you Alex!

I volunteered for one class and attended a one day semimar.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would launch an AGRESSIVE marketing campaign to encourage families to participate in Mind Treasures.

My experience with Mind Treasures has made a major impact in the lives
of my children, and the children in our community. In 2008 my son, who
was 9yrs old ,attended the ABC's of wealth classes for children sponsored by Mind Treasures and facilitated by Mr. Alex Mazloom. And
not only learned about money and its proper use, but character traits that
I found more inportant in trainning my child, such as patience,moderation,
responsibility, thankfulness,truthfullness,selflessness and generosity.
Marquis took this basic trainning and began to try and find solutions to
issues that he could make a difference. He and few classmates raised
$1,100 to help the PTA purchase a climbing wall at their elementary
school. Since September 2009, Marquis was been working to raise
90K to send 364 middle school students to the Outdoor Education
Program , which was removed due to major educational budget cuts.
The trainning that he received from the Mind Treasures has inspired
him to try and use his gifts and talents to make a difference in his
school and community, and use wealth to impact our world!
MIND TREASURES IS CHANGING OUR WORLD THRU EDUCATION !!
