Who Taught You How to Manage Your Finances?
Our founder, a former financial advisor, spent over 20 years teaching his clients' children money management skills.  Today he is building a network of advisors who volunteer to teach these critical life skills to youth around the state.  His team works with teen centers, commmunity centers, schools, libraries, Boys & Girls Clubs, Scouts, and ethnic groups.
Who Introduced You to the Outdoors?
George also spent over 20 years introducing his clients and their children to outdoor passions.  Today he is building a network of  volunteers to introduce children to 29 different outdoor passions.  George credits his love of the outdoors and connection with nature as a key to his physical, mental & spiritual health.  His team works with teen centers, commmunity centers, schools, libraries, Boys & Girls Clubs, Scouts, and ethnic groups.

*A new & special focus of ours is educating kids on global warming*
George and his team were amazing teachers with a wealth of knowledge and patience that made the experience an unforgettable one for both me and my son.

The kids loved George and immediately wanted him back.

He kept them fully engaged and did a great job simplifying what for many is a complicated topic.

My son left the experience being the happiest I had seen him in a long while.
On the way home he commented, “This was the best day ever!”

If it weren’t for my dad introducing me to the great outdoors, I wouldn’t be the person I am today.
I don’t think there’s anything more valuable, more life changing, than getting kids off electronics and into nature.  And there’s so much here in our backyard that most kids never discover.
- Joe Capozza, Volunteer
I was interested in everything he talked about and would like him to come back.

Did You Know

Only 16% of Americans can answer basic questions about personal finance correctly.

Kids today spend less time outdoors than any other generation, the average kid spending over 7 hours daily on electronics and less than 10 minutes outdoors.  Children are carrying this sedentary lifestyle and a disconnection with nature into adulthood which creates a troubling national trend for the future of conservation, our economy, and the health and wellness of our communities.
