The Wesley Learns Book Club is the only literacy program that turns its participants into first time shareholders of stocks! For this one of a kind program we have teamed up with NFL Hall of Famer and GCFLF brand ambassador, Terrell Davis, who is also featured as a character in our latest book “Wesley Learns About Insurance”. The program is based on our signature children’s financial literacy book series Wesley Learns and takes place over a two to three-month time frame requiring participants to read all 3 books to include Wesley Learns To Invest, Wesley Learns About Credit & Wesley Learns About Insurance.The program focuses on educating kids between 8 – 18 and is primarily supporting underprivileged areas, military bases, and community organizations, aiming to reach a million kids.
GCFLF understands the importance of financial literacy for a child, especially children in diverse and underserved communities. Through the Wesley Learns Book Drive, we distribute our positive financial educational books to children across the United States and introduce them to basic concepts of investing, credit and insurance. The three topics play a crucial role from childhood to adulthood. In addition to distributing books, we create the first- time shareholders of stock. We realize introducing financial topics in a way that is easy to understand in childhood will help provide a solid financial awareness for their future and help in the fight against both literacy and financial literacy.
