Working to spread financial literacy to high schools around the world
At Launch FIT, a core part of our mission is to spread financial literacy through opening FIT-sponsored Financial Literacy Club at high schools around the world. These clubs teach financial literacy using FIT's original, student-designed curricula.
PALO ALTO HIGH SCHOOL
Palo Alto, CA
Our very first Financial Literacy Club started at Palo Alto Senior High School in 2019. This club is currently being lead by Jasper Wang and Joyce Lin.
SHANGHAI STARRIVER BILINGUAL SCHOOL
Our very first international Financial Literacy Club started here in Shanghai, led by Kathie Wang. This club works in partnership with a local economics organization to spread financial literacy to youth in the area!
HOMESTEAD HIGH SCHOOL
This club is currently being led by Harry Guan, a rising sophomore at Homestead with a passion for economics.
HOW CAN I BE A CLUB LEADER?
Basic info for prospective club leaders
To become a club founder, all you need to do is open/charter a Financial Literacy Club at your high school (after communicating with the FIT program officers). As a club leader, you will be responsible for finding club members and teaching financial literacy curriculum. Launch FIT will provide teaching materials that include slides and activities. We will provide guidance and supplementary materials through our education committee which is dedicated to ensuring quality financial literacy education at all clubs. Club leaders must attend and host weekly club meetings at their high school.
