Financial literacy is more important now than ever. AROV’s classes on investments, entrepreneurship, business, and communication seek to try and offer students real-world, practical skills. Our course seeks to teach fundamentals in proper money management. We believe this subject, more so than any other, has the potential to direct a person’s future financial stability. Learning the basics of finance, investment, banking, and entrepreneurship can arm people with valuable skills and concepts that many of us are never exposed to in school. Our courses have been designed to systematically develop students’ ability to make wise, proactive financial decisions, and to empower them with the ability to achieve a sense of autonomy and comfort in life.
