I've been working at Game Theory Academy for 1 1/2 years, so I have probably asked you to get involved at some point. Now more than ever I could really use your support for our great programs!
In our paid financial education course, we don't just dictate how much to save & what kind of job to find–we help youth determine what is important to them and give them the tools to think strategically about their decisions, especially around money. Don't worry–I'm not an instructor so they won't be nearly as indecisive as I am...
In the WOW Farm Internship, high schools student get paid to work on farms in West Oakland and then sell the produce and flowers they grow to local fancy restaurants (like $$$ on Yelp). They learn how to have a "real job" while also learning how to handle both business and personal finances.
Now I know you're thinking, "You PAY these kids to learn this stuff?! What I would've done for something like this...."
Well, with your donation, we can give even more youth in the East Bay these opportunities and make you even more jealous.
So please, give what you can, and feel free to consider the opportunity cost. If you decide to forgo a few lattes this month, you'll give up the warmth in your tummy, but you'll support an awesome young person and feel the warmth of being a good person :) :) And since economists know that incentives work (hence the stipends), you'll also get an invite to an special, exclusive, pizza party!!
