DARIUS & COURTNEY PETTWAY
We have first hand experience of knowing what it feels like to not know how to navigate the real world.
Like many others, our first few years of "adulthood" (because you know everything at 18 right?) was spent making a countless number of expensive financial mistakes. And unfortunately, some of those mistakes took years to pay back.
We quickly realized that being financially uneducated is expensive. How much further along could we have been as well as many others had we simply been taught how to manage money by creating a budget, or the importance of credit, or not borrowing money for things you can't afford? What if we had actually learned how to file taxes, start a business, invest in the stock market, or know the ins and outs of building a real estate portfolio as early as middle school or high school?
Not to mention those in underrepresented and underserved communities feel the most impact by not having these resources. Whether we like to admit it or not, money affects all aspects of our life. It affects our ability to receive quality healthcare, food options, where you live, or the type of education your child can receive. Knowing how to earn, spend, save, own, and invest are all equally important components of financial literacy. We truly believe that by providing our youth quality financial education not only can we help narrow the racial wealth divide, but also improve students quality of life and financial future.
We are firm believers that it is never too early to start exposing kids to the importance of investing, ownership, and financial literacy.
Join us in our efforts to impact and educate youth from marginalized backgrounds so that we can further the prosperity of adults tomorrow. We are truly looking forward to creating more #KidVestors.
