Teen Wealth inspires teens through sharing of stories and ideas, while tackling the tough subjects that our teens are confronted with. Each week we focus on different themes such as Eating Disorders, Mental Health, Entrepreneurship, Physical Health, Bullying, Self Esteem, LGBT, Money, Sex and Parenting. Within each theme, our different hosts share stories, tips and advice from their own personal experiences and we also invite parents, teachers and teens to share their own stories. Each week we choose a book and movie of the week, as well as issue a weekly challenge to teens so they can then share their results on our private Teen Wealth Radio Show Facebook Group. Our favorite section of the show is our Everyday Heroes section, where we highlight young people that are positively making a difference in our world.
