 A core area of LIFE’s programs is the Youth Savings & Investment Club (YSIC), formerly the Youth Investment Club (YIC).


The mission of the YSIC is to increase students’ knowledge of financial matters so they can become better stewards, responsible savers, investors, and consumers. Students will learn how taking control of their finances can assist them in developing healthy and realistic behaviors and attitudes towards money and finances.
