The Livastride Foundation hosted the 10th Annual Financial Literacy Bootcamp on October 8, 2019 at the Weber State University Ogden campus for over 300 local high school students. Key sponsors for the event included Peterson Wealth Services and America First Credit Union. Presentation topics included the following: Investment Basics and How to Become a Millionaire, Debt Management and Funding, as well as Workout Addiction Recovery (WAR) and Social Media Addiction.
Billy Peterson, author of “Harnessing Your Wealth: The Pursuit of Millionaire Status”, signed donated copies of his new book for students. He wrote the book with young people in mind. They can learn a lot form his story to help them pursue their dreams and achieve financial independence.
After lunch, students were captivated by Motivational Speaker Jessie Funk discussing the importance of making good choices. There were even a few musical numbers! The bootcamp ended with a Business Panel providing students with a diverse array of professional individuals and their path to success.
Special thank you to all of our presenters, speakers, and panelists! Thank you also to the teachers for encouraging students to attend the bootcamp and leave with the tools to gain financial freedom!
