Fidelity Investments has partnered with an afterschool program, Building Educated Leaders for Life, to bring the “Stock Market 101” curriculum to middle-school students in the Boston area this summer. It will educate sixth- and seventh-graders about the stock market and the economy to help them learn about the value of investing and, perhaps, encourage some to enter the asset management industry.

The program is one of several components of Fidelity’s ongoing support for BELL. In this program, Fidelity executives beginning in July have been going to the Mattahunt School in the Boston community of Mattapan every Thursday for six weeks to teach students basic lessons about the stock market, the economy, the lifecycle of a trade, fundamental stock analysis and technical analysis.
