Through the partnership, National PTA and BKFK will bring the Secret Millionaires Club ÒGrow Your Own Business ChallengeÓ to PTAs nationwide to empower them to help children develop their own business ideas and establish healthy financial habits.
Created by Warren Buffett, the Secret Millionaires Club is a program that teaches good financial decision-making as well as basic lessons about starting a business through activities at school and home. It is designed to help children develop healthy financial habits at an early age and provide a fun way for them to learn about the Òbusiness of life.Ó Part of the Secret Millionaires Club, the ÒGrow Your Own Business ChallengeÓ is an annual national competition that encourages students to develop ideas for their own business. Finalists in the competition are invited to present their business plans to Warren Buffett.
