Wealth Builders

The Greenleaf Wealth Development Club for Student Investors is a special program designed for students of color interested in learning more about finance.

Club Members are selected from Kalamazoo Public Schools (KPS) and Portage Public Schools (PPS) high schools. The club was created to promote diversity and inclusivity within Greenleaf Trust and the financial industry by increasing the number of students of color considering finance as a college major or career. There are no dues, no fees for joining, and no expectations beyond an interest and engagement in learning finance and investment concepts—but the rewards are very real.

Explore the world of investing and finance.

Once a month, Club Members will meet with Greenleaf Trust investment professionals, Greenleaf Trust Wealth Developers, and dedicated KPS and PPS teachers/advisors. Students will learn about investing in the stock market, stocks, bonds, Wall Street, and other financial concepts. They’ll also discover why these are important to their future. The program will explore such topics as career path options and selecting a college major in finance and investments. A KPS or PPS teacher/advisor is also available as a resource to Club Members at each high school between official club meetings.
