I wish that this program was part of every school curriculum Financial education and literacy should be taught early on in a child's life - unfortunately many parents, schools and teachers are themselves not trained enough to do so. This is a must for all children who are able to participate in this program which will be the foundation of their financial know how...

Financial education and literacy through character development - this is so unique in concept and so far ahead of it's time. Everyone whom I have met who has either been involved in this program or gone through its courses, has nothing but compliments and the highest regards for the concept and it's Executive Director.

I have seen first hand how this program has affected the life of so many - has changed the impression that people have of money and has done so much to lay the foundation of a philanthropic future society

It's been pleasure working with Mind Treasures. Their ABCs of Wealth curriculum is changing the lives of many young children. I have seen the program in action and how attendees participate in various activities. I truly believe that this education should be offered at all schools across the country. Learning financial habits and skills is a must for everyone especially from young ages. My favorite lesson from the program is about how our generation is disrespecting everything by wasting valuable resources in our daily lives. Unfortunately our children are learning to be wasteful from young ages in their school environment.

I've had the pleasure of serving in a few of Mind Treasures classes for elementary children. The changes I have seen in the participants are amazing. A 4th grader writes, "I loved the program because they treated us like adults." A high school senior writes, "What I have learned in this program has prepared me for the sacrifices I'll need to make for my future spouse & children." A parent writes,"My child brought her learning home every week and taught it to her siblings."
