Teaching financial literacy in schools will never be the same. Bring Money Club to your school or organization for an immersive financial education experience!

Financial Intelligence - Just For You

Teaching financial literacy in schools can be an exhausting, expensive, difficult challenge. Why not bring a fun, engaging, and interactive experience instead?


Money Club is a financial literacy program built to put knowledge of money in the hands of young adults. Ortus Academy has delivered programs in person to over 1,400 students in over 30 schools and organizations around the US.

 

Money Club engages students in an experience of financial decision making, consequences, and lessons, alongside their peers for reinforcement.

Experience Money Club in Person

 

Money Club is the most hands-on way to teach financial decision making to young adults!​

By challenging students in an environment that encourages teamwork and collaboration, we want to encourage students to problem-solve their way to a better understanding of the one thing that everyone is after.

Your young adults will walk away with a better understanding of money, how it works, why they should work hard to earn more, and what more can do for their lifestyle. 

 

Each program starts with playing Money Club, our unique, high energy, life-like learning game. 


Students rotate through the 7 stations of money, led by our team of financial coaches who play the roles of landlord, bill collector, employer, and investment banker. Each station of the game is unique. For example in order to a collect a paycheck at that station, students must complete some fun motivational physical exercises.

 

Each money state reflects real life events and financial concepts, and each teaches the cause and effect relationships between strategically making financial decisions over time. 

A lap around the room simulates a year.  After 5 years of gameplay, we announce the winners at the end who created the highest net worth from their decisions. Teaching financial literacy in schools is more effective and engaging by using games, which can cleverly reward planning, delayed gratification to reach goals, entrepreneurial thinking, and using math to arrive at practical solutions.

Sessions set students up for financial success, with focuses such as:

  • Making informed financial decisions

  • Relating careers, education, and income

  • Planning, budgeting, and managing money

  • Managing risks and preserving wealth

  • Creating passive income and investing

 

 

Bring Money Club to your School!
