My name is Todd Benrud and I’m a high school teacher in San Diego County, California. The reason I’m contacting you is because of your background in education and finance.
In 2008 myself and three of my students started the Charity Student Investment Project. The goal of this not-for-profit organization is to teach students about personal finance, careers in finance and investing in the stock markets through the management of a real-money investment portfolio and while working with other students and industry professionals.
Currently the CSIP is only a handful of high school students at Grossmont High School, three college students and a professional mentor (Personal Financial Manger) that works for Morgan Stanley. I’d like to get other students, teachers and professional mentors involved.
If you think this sounds like an interesting and/or you have students that may be interested please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also check out our site for more info - http://charitystudentinvestmentproject.com
Thank you for your time and consideration.
Have a great day!
