The First Step Academy is an educational platform that helps teenagers learn about essential financial concepts and develop practical skills to manage their money and plan for their future. Throughout three modules, our professor-reviewed program aims to equip teens with the knowledge and skills they need to make informed financial decisions and achieve their financial goals.

  • Module 2 - Investing: This module provides the basic tools and knowledge to manage your investment portfolio.
  • Module 3 - Business: This module is designed to introduce you to the world of business and the international marketplace, covering introductory marketing, human resources, accounting and more!
