Parents

« In the name of the parents, I would like to congratulate the children for their effort and their will to extend their knowledge about personal finances.

I would also like to thank Dominique and his team of volunteers for their implication in setting up an original program for our youngsters.  We congratulate them because they assumed that young people were intelligent enough to understand some notions that others would have though too difficult for kids. From now on, our children may explain to us that their purchases have to amortized over five years and that we should only consider the current portion of their budget.  What a change!  Thanks…

Many thanks to Mr. Hopps for using his renowed talent for teaching to help carry the material to the kids. And more importantly, because of his passion, to broadly increase the interest of our kids in personal finance.

Thanks to Mrs. St-Pierre and to the École Vision because they have recognized the real value of the training. Congratulations to the new graduates!

Students

« I decided to practice what I have leared from the academy : start saving money and manage my budget. With my little brother, I mow the lawn at my house and my neighbour’s, so that I may start investing. »

Léandre, 11 years old, primary level graduate in December 2010

« I have learned a lot, while livign a very stimulating experience. Now that I gratuated, I have decided to be part of the Académie du Trésor so I gave my graduation token to its foundation. I know that my simple gesture will help another kid to benefit from that brilliant training.

I believe that we will find the true value of our new knowledge only when we apply it in real life, and that time will be our ally.»
