Here’s Why You Should Invest It Forward
Invest It Forward™ is designed to help young people understand how to harness the capital markets for their own benefit – whether starting a new business or saving and investing for a secure and prosperous financial future – and realize their dreams. Complementing the SIFMA Foundation’s critically acclaimed national Stock Market Game™ program, which has reached 15 million students, volunteers from industry firms will personally offer exciting, multimedia in-school and afterschool lessons to help our nation’s youth better prepare for their own futures as financially capable and engaged citizens.
To help young people connect to the opportunities inherent in the capital markets through their understanding of how the markets spur economic growth and the prosperity of people across America.
To connect industry/ SIFMA member firms and their employees with classrooms and afterschool programs nationwide, arming them with brand-new interactive multimedia lessons for use in promoting capital markets literacy and financial capability.
To work with financial education leaders across the sectors to create online, interactive lessons for volunteers to present at four levels – elementary, middle, high school, college – on topics that enhance existing financial education materials.
