What is TREI?
Teens Rebound Economy Initiative [aka TREI] was formed to inspire urban teens to become financially literate. Our hope is that by creating the habit of financial responsibility early, participating teens will grow into responsible leaders in the community. This is just our small contribution to getting the country on a path of financial recovery.
With your help, we will donate print copies of The Answer Key to Avoid Debt Build Credit & Retire Rich [for grads, soon to be grads and everyone in between] to organizations that have a financial education course as part of their after school, college preparation, or summer curriculum. Books will be sent to Urban Leagues, Boys and Girls Clubs of America, Boy Scouts, Girls Scouts, the YMCA etc.
Urban youth are saturated with suggestive cigarette, alcohol ads as well as sexually explicit ads on local billboards and commercials that influence their decision making negatively. With a few steps, they realize they can get started on a path of legitimate financial freedom and self reliance.
Time and compound interest are on their side. The steps are not partial to any particular age, race, income, or gender. The rules of wealth accumulation respond to anyone who knows and uses them properly.
We thank you in advance for helping us help teens and young adults receive the proper knowledge they need to help create and sustain a balanced economy in the future.

Where the Funds will Go:
We will be sending print copies of The Answer Key to Avoid Debt Build Credit & Retire Rich to programs already helping [urban] teens via after school programs.
Print copies of the book will be used in after school programs via organizations as Urban League, Boys & Girls clubs of America, Boys Scouts, Girls Scouts, YMCA and some at times High School Senior Classes in urban communities.
Program directors will be contacted for specific number in class/group/program. A follow up form will be submitted for impact on teens.
Target 16-25 years of age. They are 35% African American; 25 % Hispanic; 15% Caucasian; and 10% Asian, 10% Filipino; and 5% Native American. Approximately 80% have household incomes of $25,000 or less. 20% have $26-$50,000. 75% single. 20% single with children. 5% are married with children.
"Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding". Proverbs 4:7
Customized Editions for Company Sponsors
Please contact us if you are a company and would like us to send a customized edition of the book to one of the above noted organizations in your company name and contact info and promo code if any. We will make sure you get verification for your records for tax purposes. There is no additional cost for customized editions. [This option requires a minimum commitment of 1000 units (covers 5 teen groups) for $15,000]
We reserve the right to decline any company we deem inappropriate for teens.
We expect to ship at least 400 print copies to at least 2 teen organizations [approx 200 per organization] by the end of March 2013. With your help we can do more... lots more!
When teens feel like they have choices, they have hope. When given a plan that has worked for other "legit" moguls, they tend to start dreaming the "impossible" into to possibility. Working a part time job with a long term goal in mind. Saving for product inventions. saving for a new home. Saving for a car. Actually saving for a retirement that they see they can have becomes doable.
We expect to see teens become lawful responsible adults who help clean up communities and give back to the next generation. We realize that with hope there can be a decrease of violence, drugs, and at risk teens.
