Teach Money Inc. is a non-profit organization with the mission of strengthening the economic foundation of the people of Guam and Micronesia through financial education. Research has shown that the benefits of financial education in the community include having a better grasp of money concepts, reduced stress and anxiety surrounding money issues, and an overall healthier outlook towards the future.
Teach Money’s flagship activity for kids is the annual Stock Market Game and Awards Ceremony, which has been in existence in Guam for over 20 years. The program has grown from just a few students participating to over 1000 students from both public and private schools across the island! The Stock Market Game gives students the chance to invest a hypothetical $100,000 in a real-time portfolio while at the same time learning economic and financial concepts that they will use for the rest of their lives.
