First Financial FCU has established their second Millionaire’s club in Baltimore County with the launch of their newest Club at Perry Hall High School. The students at Perry Hall High School now have a new tool for personal financial success at their disposal.
The Millionaire’s Club is a complete financial skills program designed for delivery in a club-like setting at the high school level. Clubs are provided seed grants, detailed curriculum, and Faculty/Student materials at no charge. Also included are entry into national competitions such as The Stock Market Game™ and The Personal Finance Challenge™ and additional support materials add a fun, competitive edge to the Club’s activities.
Launched in 2012, the Millionaire’s Club concept has caught the attention of educators and credit union sponsors alike in Anne Arundel, Baltimore, Calvert, Carroll, Howard, Montgomery, Somerset, and Prince Georges Counties and Baltimore City. Over 1,000 individual students have participated in the Millionaire’s Club.
Credit Union Sponsors serve as guest speakers on topics such as identity theft, selecting a financial institution, credit, etc. while the core curriculum, developed by the National Endowment for Financial Education (NEFE), is delivered by professional educators either in-class or after school.
Club members elect their own leadership, actively engage in the program, and conduct a year-ending entrepreneurial project that allows Club members to put into practice their new financial skills while ensuring the Club’s future.
