Youth Investment Group

Youth Investment Group (Confirmation through 12th grade)
Twice monthly after school
At Panera or group leaders home

Led by St. John’s parishioners, the Youth Investment Group meets twice a month, once on a conference call with the church’s financial advisor in Florida to go over the principles of the market and the second to discuss their portfolio. After going over profit/earning ratios and recent trends, the youth decide what stocks to sell or buy. At the end of the fiscal year, a percentage of their earnings can be awarded to local charities. This also requires the group to investigate local non-profits and charities and to determine where the money they have earned can do the most good in the Carlisle community.
