At FortuneBuilders, nothing ignites our passion quite like preparing talented, ambitious young adults for a brighter, more promising future. That’s why we partnered with the Equal Footing Foundation to sponsor the Future FortuneBuilders Teen Camp. This fun and exciting, 2day camp teaches teens the basic fundamentals of financial literacy.
The Future FortuneBuilders 2 day camp is a great networking opportunity for teens ages 13-17. During this weekend camp, JP navigates the students through the importance of financial literacy and how mentorship is important in creating leaders. Teens get the opportunity to network and learn with the best and the brightest as JP provides them with invaluable knowledge and insights about the financial tools and resources they need to succeed.
John is nationally known for giving some of the most inspirational speeches to millennials around the country. He was taught the instructional method of inspirational speaking by Than Merrill, Paul and JD Esajian, as well as former Olympians and professional athletes.
