Detroit based youth investors to ring closing bell at Chicago Stock Exchange
So, 2018 is finally here and Tuesday, Jan. 2, marks the first business day of the year. For one metro Detroit youth group, this day is more significant than the rest, as they are about to make history by being one of the first youth groups of its kind to ring the closing bell at the Chicago Stock Exchange at 3 p.m. CST/4 p.m. EST.
Money Matters for Youth (MM4Y) is an organization that is geared towards helping young people become financially literate and has been teaching financial literacy for the past 21 years. Its mission is to teach approximately 200 students annually between the ages of 8-18 the basics of economics and financial literacy and over the past two decades, they’ve done this through a 5-day summer camp for its youth “investors.” Last spring, the group made history by being the first group of its kind to attend Warren Buffet’s shareholder weekend in Omaha, Nebraska.
