About Us

Our Mission

Investing4Teens is a non-profit initiative dedicated to promoting Financial Literacy among young people. Our mission is to make financial education accessible and engaging for everyone, regardless of their background or experience. We believe that financial literacy is a vital life skill that can empower young people to make informed decisions about their finances and achieve their long-term goals.

Our Approach

At Investing4Teens, our approach is to provide practical, real-world scenarios that help young people develop the skills needed to navigate the complexities of personal finance. We offer a range of interactive tools, including simulations, quizzes, and videos, that are designed to be engaging and fun.

Our goal is to provide a self-paced, free learning experience accessible from anywhere to help young people gain the knowledge and skills they need to make informed financial decisions.

Our Team

Investing4Teens was founded by Pradyuman Raja, an aspiring Economic Policymaker who is currently a student at Palos Verdes Peninsula High School. Pradyuman noticed a lack of financial education among his peers and started Investing4Teens to promote financial literacy among young people.

Pradyuman's contributions to the team include ideation, design, creation of the online platform, content creation, and website creation. In addition to his work with Investing4Teens, he is also a current leader in his local Scout troop, helping to develop the skills needed to succeed in all areas of life. He has also previously served on Congressman Ted Lieu's Youth Advisory Council, where he gained valuable experience in public policy and leadership.

Agatha Andriani, a talented video creator, contributed to the team by creating engaging voice-based videos to help educate young people on personal finance.

Together with a team of dedicated volunteers, we are committed to providing young people with the tools and resources they need to make informed financial decisions and achieve their goals.
