How Dre Mudaris and Children To Wealth Advocate for Financial Literacy

It is common for most people coming into adulthood to be unprepared for the financial decisions they now have to face. Understanding credit scores, investing, and any other decisions about money often feel confusing or intimidating. Because these young people do not know how to make sound decisions about their financial future, they may make poor choices, which can lead to unfortunate repercussions down the line. Financial literacy activist Dre Mudaris believes that learning about finances should start at an early age. His determination to help the youth grow into financially responsible adults is why he started his company, Children To Wealth.

Aside from being a financial literacy advocate, Dre Mudaris is a businessman, investor, motivational speaker, and best-selling author. Coming from a real estate background, he quickly learned the ins and outs of investing in real estate. Dre has various real estate development ventures and investments and property management ventures operating in New Jersey and Atlanta. His line of work has helped him reach financial freedom and stability, and soon he started looking for a way to help others take control of their finances.

Upon closer look, Dre Mudaris found that there was a lack of financial literacy education in schools. This finding was common across the board. It led to generations of children who grew up unprepared and unaware of the financial responsibilities they had to take on as adults.

To combat this lack of financial literacy lessons in schools, Dre Mudaris created Children To Wealth. This private education company provides children with personal finance and business education through books, seminars, and educational products. And although Children To Wealth was created to help children learn to be responsible about money matters, it can also help families, and young adults develop better financial habits. 

Dre Mudaris shared, “Our mission at Children To Wealth is to help kids and young adults learn, understand, and master financial literacy with culturally relevant material. We teach them concepts in a way that is easy for them to understand and remember. We also have little assignments we give them so these kids can apply what they have learned and take the first step in making smart decisions for their future.”

Children To Wealth partners with schools and teaches children the history of money, how to save, how to understand taxes, credit, life insurance, real estate, and many other financial concepts. They teach these concepts to the students using the Uncle Dre Club, a series of books focused on financial literacy written by Dre Mudaris himself.

Dre Mudaris created the programs at Children To Wealth intending to empower the youth. He shared, “Our financial education content is made specifically for our youth. And the programs we created help develop practical skills that build confidence in these children and empower them to be more knowledgeable about personal finance. With the skills they learn with us, they gain the tools they need to face major life decisions and transitions.”

Children To Wealth makes financial literacy fun and engaging through books, games and television shows made especially for school-aged kids. The company also provides several other programs to help children and their parents understand and apply various essential financial skills. Dre Mudaris hopes that a new generation of financially knowledgeable, responsible, and empowered youths will arise through his work.

Dre Mudaris is a businessman and the author of over 30 children’s books on financial literacy. He is also the founder of Children To Wealth, an education company that teaches children financial skills. To learn more about the company’s programs, you may visit their website.
