Building Financial Literacy Through The Creative Arts

What We Do

  • Experiential residencies in entrepreneurship, small business ownership, and personal finance.
  • Facilitate learning by doing. Students participate in fun, imaginative, self-directed projects that create deep, foundational learning experiences.

Who We Serve

  • Students ages 3-18 in schools and other places where young people gather.
  • We offer 6 to 8 week in-school residencies, ongoing after school programs, and drop-in summer camp programming.

Why We Do It

Financial Literacy has never been more needed. We believe that every young person should have a foundational education in Financial Literacy that sets each of them up for strong decision making as independent adults. Through proven drama-in-education techniques, we make Financial Literacy part of the fabric of extraordinary scenarios where students learn through play. Participants get to make decisions - and mistakes - in a safe world.

For Pre-K and Elementary School

It's never too early to start learning how to manage money. Our early childhood and elementary school programs focus on creative and dramatic play to help young people gain critical skills to set them up for a future of financial success.

For Middle and High School

Students learn best when they're engaged and having fun. Using proven drama in education techniques and project-based learning, students dive into the work of developing budgets and building businesses to build skills that will last a lifetime.

Options for Parents

Try as we might, we can't get rid of our popular summer camp and birthday options. For our families who come back year after year (and their friends who've heard about the fun), we still offer one summer camp each year. We also have limited availability for your birthday party or celebration- see below!
