Stakeholder’s Club

Club Overview  

The goal of the TCS Stakeholders Club will be to learn essential biblical, investing, career and business principles.  The curriculum will help equip members with a foundational understanding of these principles and mindset to support their future success.  This is open to all high school students with an interest and passion for success, making wise choices with their finances, and understanding investing and types of crucial decisions around making investments.  Parents are encouraged to attend any in person or virtual meetings alongside of their children. 

A core emphasis of the club will be on an investment competition being provided by the Wharton Global Youth Program from the University of Pennsylvania.  There will be a core group of 4-7 competitors taken from the club members.  This contest will run from September 28th to December 11th.  You can read about this competition at https://globalyouth.wharton.upenn.edu/academic-year-programs/investment-competition/
