Headlines were recently made when a group of Redditors banded together to buy and raise the price of stocks such as GameStop and AMC. This caused billions of dollars of losses to several big institutional investors who had assumed large short positions in those same stocks and had to buy to cover as a result of the price rise.
How does this all work? For the average high schooler, it can seem quite complicated and mysterious (and scary!) Fortunately, you can learn all about the world of investing in stocks, bonds, real estate, options, foreign currency, etc. through an online camp called TEACH ME WALL STREET.
Teach Me Wall Street
Teens aged 13-18 are invited to a one-of-a-kind series of courses which cover all the basics of investing from a REAL WORLD perspective. By learning about the following topics, you will be able to make money with smart investments and get a head start on saving for your future:
- the stock market
- currency trading
- related financial institutions
- fintech (finance technology) and jobs
- and how they all come together.

“The best gift any educator can get is seeing how, when students learn, they are able to connect all the dots. Countless times people have told me how they are taught about various things, but never really understand how it all works. However, when taking a workshop or tour with us there is context and history, and we make it fun – so it is easy to learn how the stock exchange and the whole financial system works.
—ANNALINE DINKELMANN, FOUNDER
