First Generation Investors (FGI)[1] is an American Nonprofit organization that teaches underprivileged high school students how to invest real money, hence contributing to their financial education and inclusion, while also empowering them on a social and educational level. FGI uses real money to introduce high school teens to investing in the stock market. For the first time in their life, participants learn about saving and investing, hence giving them a chance to accumulate wealth over time. Learning is done by investing real money, and by using learning materials and examples that are relevant and close to the teenagers' lives. The instructors are all volunteer college students, and the minimal age differences between the students and their instructors is a valuable aspect contributing to the program's success
