Mind Treasures is an amazing non-profit organization that really teaches children and adults of financial responsibility...they do a great job speaking in simple terms that everyone can understand and put into action.
The presentation made me think long and hard about my lifestyle, I realized I need to make a positive change in how I live.
Mind Treasures is a must program for our youth! I've been wanting to implement lessons on financial literacy for a few years in our organization's summer program (Any Body Can Youth Foundation) and Alex provided this organized with a very informative course, with the added tough task of having to teach to a blended group of 5th through 11th graders. The approach was perfect and the variety of lessons, activities, and mediums used (hands on activities, workbooks, video, etc.) made each session very engaging. Not only did our youth learn about important finance terms and habits, but they also learned a great deal about the values that are important to have not only when dealing with money, but when going through life. Very happy that this program is available in our community!
We met with Alex and Mind Treasures in the summer of 2014 and immediately felt the impact of their financial guidance. Our road isn't easy; we rest easier knowing we aren't mismanaging the basics while trying to move on to the more advanced items down our path.
My son is now 16 years old and a sophomore in high school. He was in third grade when he first started in this very special program. He learned the priceless value of money in relationship to himself and the world around him.
He used to have the "burning hole" in his pocket, not unusual for a young boy his age. But through this wonderful program, he learned the core values of earning his own money, saving his own money and charitable giving - of his own money.
Boys grow up into teenagers. Teenagers are well-known for being self-involved, very self-motivated and oftentimes selfish.
And yes, my son does have his days .... but to both his and Mind Treasure's credit, he has stayed true to the principles he learned with Mind Treasures. He still saves more than 1/3 of his money and has learned to donate not only his money, but his time to a specific charity that he enjoys supporting.
As far as I'm concerned, Mind Treasures could also been called Heart Treasures; they are a remarkable organization doing great work. Thank You Alex & Company.
Some years ago I was able to attend a Mind Treasures workshop. The program seemed simple enough and at the time I had a good bit of debt. I began following the advice and although it took 4 years to clear my debt, I now have savings and use only 2 credit cards and pay them off at the end of every month.
Now my purpose in using the credit cards is to get points to travel. A much better way to "spend" money.
Mind Treasures is a great organization that instils financial literacy in young people. Not only do the lessons benefit children, they also apply to parents. This program has helped parents as well. The instructors have a heart to see people become financially secure and to raise the next generation to overcome financial obstacles.
This excellent organization helped me get completely out of debt and STAY that way. I also had the pleasure of helping with a children's class at one point and was quite impressed with the way the children are taught to utilize money with the idea of giving service to others.
This is a very fine organization and I highly recommend it.
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 :)

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!
