It’s a phenomenal program I’d recommend to all teenagers and young adults. Kids need to have a sense of how things work in the financial world and broader economy. I want Sophie to be able to read NY Times and follow the headlines. ‐ YFS Alumni Parent (Sophie’s Mother)

I was planning to enroll them in other summer camps, but they all refused, saying they didn't have time. However, they agreed to join the YFS Program after they read the YFS brochure and the curriculum, and I was also happy. This shows that they are taking this seriously and want to follow the project and constantly improve their cognitive ability. I was very happy to hear the children's presentations for the first time. Through learning, they enriched and improved their knowledge. They really like the program! - YFS Alumni Parent (Alex and Clara’s Mother)

 "YFS Summer Camp at the New York Institute of Finance
is the most challenging camp for Daniel.
The instructors are financial experts, some of whom are senior professors, who are very dedicated. Most of the instructors are based in New York. Teaching assistants are also dedicated and helpful, guiding students to complete financial research projects" - 
YFS Alumni Parent (Daniel’s Mother )
