In this day and age, financial literacy is an important skill to understand and master. Students should learn the value of saving and wisely investing their money as early as they can, in order to maximize their profits and achieve their financial goals.
Amador’s Investment Club aims to teach students about how the stock market works. In its second year, this club is the perfect opportunity for people with all levels of prior knowledge to understand the basics of investing. The club hosts workshops, provides extra online materials such as subscriptions to websites and magazines, and hosts competitive investing events. Since investment is a skill that takes much practice to acquire, Investment Club aims to provide exposure to students early on so that they can develop a strong financial background and make smart decisions later.
Recently, at an event hosted by Investment Club, venture capitalist Tim Draper came to speak to Amador Valley High School students. As a billionaire, Draper has much experience working and succeeding in Silicon Valley. The focus of his talk was entrepreneurship, finance, technology, and Silicon Valley innovation, but he covered topics ranging from viral marketing to Bitcoin investments.
The event was a great opportunity to learn from one of the industry’s best on how students can take advantage of the available opportunities to succeed in Silicon Valley. In addition to investment advice, Draper also shared real-world life lessons with the crowd. Most importantly, he emphasized the value of never giving up in the face of failure, and learning how to grow from setbacks.
