School may teach us about the Pythagorean theorem or the Civil War, but these concepts can only go so far to help once we grow up to be an independent individual in this capitalist economy. The PHS Young Investors club focuses on building on a skill that isn't taught, also known as investing. With future debts upcoming such as student and car loans, a salary may not be sufficient. Knowing how to invest will ultimately put your money to work and guide you to financial freedom. In this club, we'll cover all the basics of the stock market including tradable securities such as stocks, options, and spreads. We'll host a school-wide competition to see who can capitalize on the skills that we'll teach. There may be prizes for the top investors. In addition to that, we are going to participate in the KWHS Investment Competition hosted by Wharton. No experience is required to participate in this club! Since many teens don't have the opportunity to experience this, we hope you join us on this journey to explore new avenues.
