About Us

Money Matters to Students focuses on raising awareness for and teaching about financial education. Through weekly and bimonthly student-led workshops at various after-school programs in Virginia, Pennsylvania, Texas, New York, Kentucky, China, Japan, and Kenya, Money Matters teaches basic personal finance material to students. We also forge partnerships with existing educational institutions to deliver our message. Dedicated not only to improving financial literacy rates, we also stress college preparedness and the importance of education through encouragement lectures. Overall, we impact approximately 300 students on a weekly basis directly, over 7,900 students in China every summer, and lecture over 1,000,000 students in 2 different languages online. To make this happen, we lead a team of 30 high school students across county lines and 200 university students across the globe to help other kids. This nonprofit group is entirely student-led, with a distinguished advisory board.
