Financial Joy School’s seminars will educate and inspire participants, featuring speakers from Motley Fool Ventures, EQUIP and Trust & Will 

Financial Joy School, a free financial education platform for the Black Community, will offer three seminars in the Fall with leading wealth experts, financial resources, and tools to help Black youth and families become long-term investors and build generational wealth.

“Everyone can build generational wealth,” says Ruby Taylor, M.S.W., CEO and Founder of Financial Joy School. “You don’t need to be a celebrity or a CEO of a billion-dollar company. It’s a matter of what you can pass on for the next generation to build upon. You’re worthy enough, you’re smart enough, and we’re making it simple.”

Financial Joy School’s upcoming virtual seminars will be hosted by financial experts that will teach and inspire participants to build and protect generational wealth. Seminars include: 

•September 18, 2021 (12:30-1:30 pm ET): What is Investing? presented by Ollen Douglass, Managing Director of Motley Fool Ventures

•October 16, 2021 (12:30 -1:30 pm ET): How to Invest, presented by Kerrie Carden, Founder of EQUIP

•November 20, 2021 (12:30-1:30pm ET): What is a Will and a Trust? presented by Cody Barbo, Founder and CEO of Trust & Will

Attending our seminars will help Black youth and families create generational wealth for a more financially secure and joyful life. Participants will learn, grow financially, and have chances to win prizes during each seminar that will help them build generational wealth. 

Financial Joy School has partnered with corporate sponsors, including Trust & Will, to provide free access to these seminars for all participants. To register for an upcoming seminar, visit:
