WorldofMoney.org Founder/CEO Sabrina Lamb has designated 2011 as “The Year of Developing Capable Youth” and is determined to develop financially responsible agape adults; one child at a time.
The WorldofMoney.org was launched in December of 2005, quickly amassing an ambitious roster of financial experts who remain committed to empowering underserved youth with a sound financial foundation, graduating hundreds of students. The WorldofMoney.org provides underserved youth, ages
9 – 18, with the empowering tools to survive economic cycles, by examining their own money mindsets to create budgets, establish savings plans, manage/avoid debt, understand investment strategies, set financial legacies and make sound decisions for their education and retirement. Having these basic financial planning tools encourages underserved youth to become family team players, maximize their longer-term financial well-being and to balance consumer and investor behaviors.
