Investment Dream

*Jacob (16) is a smart, caring teenager who is working hard to grow his independence and build his self esteem while he explores his interests for the future. Jacob has lost loved ones, endured displacement and witnessed violence. His dreams are to have a career in welding and learn about managing money. Jacob received an invitation to spend a day learning about investing and savings at Dream Granter MAI Capital Management.  Jacob shared he is very focused on his future and becoming independent. To him this means having a good stable job so he can afford his own home.

Jacob's dream experience also included a career shadowing day as a welder, Driver education classes, cooking lessons and a new bike. This dream package will empower Jacob to achieve his future goals. Jacob shared the impact of this experience will "help open up opportunities in my life."
