And We’re Off!

The 2021 Summer Stock Market Experience is Underway!

No person should consider their education complete until they understand and experience investing in the stock market. Through CLIMB, in cooperation with SIFMA Foundation, we are bringing this important investment education to more youth – and adults - through our Summer Stock Market Experience Program.

This summer, we have over 300 students and 100 adult advisors from all quadrants of the United States participating in our ten-week Summer Stock Market Experience.  This summer’s cohort represents more than 30 youth-serving organizations and institutions. From June 14th to August 20th these students, divided into teams of five, will manage a portfolio with a simulated beginning balance of $100,000 dollars. The teams with the greatest returns on their investments by the end of the competition will receive performance awards in the form of deposits into credit union savings accounts.


In addition to the simulated investment experience, students and adult advisers will follow a “summer friendly” curriculum of curated videos from the St. Louis Federal Reserve and the SIFMA Foundation.  The curriculum also includes our Tuesday Speakers Series of presentations from industry experts.


Special thanks to our “Partners in CLIMB”, including the Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association Foundation (SIFMA), the African American Credit Union Coalition (AACUC), BetterInvesting and CUNA Mutual Group Foundation, Inc.
