Our Mission in the Classroom
For many, the financial market seems like a foreign entity. Our mission is to break down these barriers. Our program provides access to an educational, fun resource for youth who are vividly passionate to learn how to operate the stock market or simply learn how to make money.

KINDLE INTEREST AND PASSION
LEARN TOOLS TO EARN MONEY AS YOUTH
Financial barriers should not bar dreams.
Our mission is to inspire the next-generation investors. In every one of our five-week programs, we host a stock-simulation program, where the student(s)–who achieves the greatest percentage return and demonstrates a genuine passion in investment–will be provided a grant to open their own real-life portfolio. A total of $3,000 worth of grants were provided in the Sept. 2020 - Sept. 2021 filing year.
Meet the Founder
In 6th Grade, gifted my first stock in Sony by my aunt, my interest in the investment market was sparked. However, with family that had zero exposure to the stock market, I had to find a way to learn how fundamentals of the market myself–I was determined to break into the barriers of the investment world.
With a lack of investment programs catering to my age, I had to seek mentors and teach myself the nuisances of the market. Pouring over books, receiving advice from professionals, and spending of hundreds trading on the market, I have gained a unique perspective of learning about the stock market as a youth.
Officially licensed on September 13, 2020, I am the youngest professionally designated Chartered Mutual Fund Counselor (CMFC®) in the nation. Additionally, I manage my own small fund, Jingo Capital–founded on January 2020–with 6-figures in capital. I have had the fortunate opportunities to intern at local investment firms in Orange County and to legislate California's first financial literacy bill (AB423).
I currently am in high school, attending The Thacher School, a boarding school in Ojai, California
Through my experiences, I kindle a new dream to enable the millions of youth, in the same position as I once was, with the opportunities of accessing the resources to learn about the stock market and build the skill-sets to thrive in today's world. This is the reason I launched Youth Investors Corp.
I hope that you join us in our journey.
