OUR Key Impact and Effectiveness

Increasing Finance and Investment Literacy among youth:

Since the start date, there are more than 30,000 audiences for our free workshops, seminars, and classes. 2 to 5 free online zoom seminars are continued from the start date until now. There are more than 3000 parents and K12 students signing up for our free or low-cost finance, kids CEO, kids budget planning, and kids investment game classes.
Since 2020, more than 200 high school students participated in various local and national finance, investment, and economics competiton, they won multiple national and state-level awards.

Advocating SDGs and ESG Awareness among the young generation:

We emphasize on UN’s SDG goals and focus on education, zero-carbon, and zero-hunger initiatives.
During a pandemic and post-pandemic, we participated in NYC’s food pantry action. We brought 100+ students and worked full day to pack and sort the food for low-income seniors. Together with UA3 and a few other NYC non-profits, we totally delivered more than 1 million pounds of food, which was reported in NY Time. This summer we are going to organize the volunteer activities again.
This spring, we partnered with UN Training Division and launched a UN Youth Leadership Program. There are 85 students enrolled in this program and attended more than 20 sessions of lessons that were taught by UN officials. They learned about SDG goals and designed various social impact projects and ideas.
