Every year, thousands of young people transition from college students into citizens of the real world. However, even after spending several years earning a college degree, many students are still uneducated regarding the personal finance issues they will need to deal with as independent adults living and working in the real world. With that observation, the idea for the Kanga Course: Real-World Explained Workshop was born. Through the fall of 2004, the idea was just that: an idea written on a piece of paper. In the spring of 2005, the owner of that piece of paper and the founder of the Kanga Course, Mr. Hormazd J. Kanga, was fortunate to be an intern with the University of Kentucky Von Allmen Center for Entrepreneurship. As a consequence of working with the Entrepreneurship Center, Mr. Kanga was able to attend the Business Idea Development Workshop, a 6-day course led by internationally recognized entrepreneurs from VentureQuest Limited of Denver, Colorado which is designed to assist aspiring entrepreneurs seeking to take their idea from concept to market.
The Kanga Course: Real-World Explained Workshop is a 4-hour, interactive workshop developed to educate young people on the issues of Taxes, Housing, Transportation, Benefits, Saving and Investing, Retirement, and Voting. Being knowledgeable about these subjects could save you thousands of dollars throughout your lifetime!
