The Story

I am a firm believer in our youth and teaching them the importance of financial education. For over a decade, I've mentored youth and have spoken at schools all over the country on the importance of money management, encouraging kids to learn early about money and finances. A former Division 1 athlete with no money and no food during my playing days, I saved my last $20 to avoid being flat broke and when I was able, I eventually invested that same $20. After teaching my college students and the youth I mentor about investing and the stock market, I was inspired to embark on an even greater initiative of turning 10,000 youth into public company shareholders. I want to teach youth the importance of ownership. I want to give youth from single female headed households, underprivileged and under-represented communities the chance to participate in the stock market. I want to help them rise above low-living, a poverty mindset, break the generational financial curse and economic bondage. I want to help youth get started early so as their natural life progresses, they have accumulated wealth, assets, they own something and can now help build prosperous futures for themselves and their family.

Financial Literacy and Investing is an important component of the Chris Sain Jr. Mentoring Program for Young Men.

My initial goal is to raise $10,000 for the first two cohorts by May 31st, 2017. With the end of school and onset of summer fast approaching, we lose a lot of youth to gun violence. The goal is to be connected to a mentor, have something positive and engaging to be part of to help show them how bright their future can be and to avoid an early grave. After that, my goal is to partner with investment firms and public companies to have shares donated as I engage other foundations, community foundations, nonprofits, schools, businesses, and agencies geared toward serving youth between the ages of 8 and 18.

It's Possible!!! Let's turn 10,000 youth into OWNERS. Lets' restore HOPE and help them see how bright and different their futures can actually be by getting started early. To learn more, please contact me at [email protected] and follow me on Facebook.
