He Teaches Financial Literacy To Young People, And The Lessons Transcend Money
August 5th, 2021
Based on an enduring promise he made to a brother who died four decades ago, Nicholas Josey is teaching a small classroom of young people how to prepare for a life of financial responsibility.
“Who is the most important person in this room?” asks Josey, a 1990 Northeastern graduate who is executive director of the Vincita Institute, a non-profit financial education organization based in Boston. The answer, he says to each student, is you.
Josey wants the students, ages 14 through 19, to assert their own importance—to handle money in ways that will empower them throughout their lives.
