The TeenSmart program connects schools, libraries, and non-profits to books published by Aude™ on subjects relating to personal finance and investing, free of charge. Our current lead is The Modern Guide to Stock Market Investing for Teens by Alan John, which is the top selling book on investing for teens in the world. Through TeenSmart, this book has been made available to 1.3m youth aged 10-19 through a network of 987+ libraries, schools, non-profits, and clubs.
The short-run evolution of the program is being orchestrated in union with the release of Financial Freedom for Teens and 12 Rules for Teens, both set to come out in fall 2023. These books provide a thorough baseline of knowledge on personal finance, business, and investing. Through TeenSmart, we aim to push these resources to 5,000 communities in combination with live classes in 2023.
