Basically, this is a Generation Next Personal and Professional, Training and Development Course that was designed to empower youth for now and the future.

It provides skills they need to set and achieve goals and perform to their full potential – at home, school, life, and work. This course was developed with feedback from students (survey of 350 students) along with the Coach Jeffery Duncan Henderson’s background on life experiences, educational training, corporate work experiences in the financial services industry, traveling internationally on business, interacting with numerous business executive, millionaires, and being hired by billionaire J. Mack Robinson who the School of Business at Georgia State is named after.

This course is also designed based on Coach Jeffery's oldest daughter graduating from Georgia Tech (Business, Project Management, and Technology) as an honor roll student-athlete in 2018 with money in her pocket, his youngest daughter getting ready to graduate from the University of Georgia (Civil Engineering) as an honor roll student-athlete in 2020 with money in her pocket, one of his students receiving a $200,000 scholarship, and another of his students acquiring scholarships.

The YBU Foreign Exchange Market (FOREX) Educational Course

Youth Branding University Investment Educational Course

Did you know that you can invest in the Foreign Exchange Market (FOREX) like the larger international banks and Financial centers around the world with small increments of money?

Did you know that the FOREX Market is a $6.6 trillion financial market based on the following:

Did you know that the FOREX market is unique because of the following characteristics:

  • its huge trading volume, representing the largest asset class in the world leading to high liquidity;
  • its geographical dispersion;
  • its continuous operation: 24 hours a day except for weekends, i.e., trading from 22:00 GMT on Sunday (Sydney) until 22:00 GMT Friday (New York);
  • the variety of factors that affect exchange rates;
  • the low margins of relative profit compared with other markets of fixed income; and
  • the use of leverage to enhance profit and loss margins and with respect to account size.

Inasmuch, the Foreign Exchange Market (Forex, FX, or currency market) is a global decentralized or over-the-counter (OTC) market for the trading of currencies. This market determines foreign exchange rates for every currency. It includes all aspects of buying, selling, and exchanging currencies at current or determined prices. In terms of trading volume, it is by far the largest market in the world, followed by the credit market.

The main participants in this market are the larger international banks. Financial centers around the world function as anchors of trading between a wide range of multiple types of buyers and sellers around the clock, with the exception of weekends. Since currencies are always traded in pairs, the Foreign Exchange Market market does not set a currency's absolute value but rather determines its relative value by setting the market price of one currency if paid for with another. Ex: US$1 is worth X CAD, or CHF, or JPY, etc.

As a result, the Youth Branding University Investment Educational Course is designed to empower existing and new students by offering world-renowned trading educational sessions. We are dedicated to our students and prepared to assist them in learning how to navigate the financial markets!

This course offers a Trade Academy designed to teach our students on how to analyze and trade the foreign exchange financial markets!  Our premier, in-depth education platform is designed to be completely comprehensive covering multiple asset classes and taking potential traders A - Z from trading basics all the way through advanced institutional trading. The platform includes extensive video training covering a vast scope of financial market education, many additional text resources to aid in comprehension, and quizzes/homework assignments designed to test you along the way and ensure that students grasp each important subject.

This course is comprised to take our students directly into the financial markets to show hands-on examples and explanations and show how all of the education can be applied in a real market environment!

This course is organized into 6 main modules as follows:

  • Module 1: Indices
  • Module 2: Commodities
  • Module 3: Cryptocurrency
  • Module 4: Forex
  • Module 5:Stocks 
  • Module 6: Technical Analysis

​Modules 1 through 5 are designed to provide our students with all of the necessary foundational knowledge for the particular asset class that is required prior to actually learning how to analyze and trade the corresponding assets. In these sectors, students will learn about the terminology, history, mechanics, industry, etc. for the particular module. Additionally, each of these modules is designed to offer a complete foundation so each module will have training on brokers, trading platforms, and how to navigate them (including MT4 and TradingView), and much more!

Please note that Youth Branding University nor our instructors do not provide broker recommendations, nor are we directly affiliated with any brokerages. We solely provide helpful educational information to assist our students in their research so that they are more comfortable as to investing in the Foreign Exchange Market.

Module 6 focuses completely on Technical Analysis, which is the use of past market data to analyze current market conditions and make calculated trading decisions. The vast majority of our training content will be in this module, and we place a significant focus on taking our students straight into markets/charts so that our students can learn directly from the financial markets that they will be analyzing and trading in the future.

Youth Branding University strives to ensure that all of our students are fully informed of the risks associated with trading the financial markets and not just the potential benefits. We strongly encourage that our students read the Risk Disclosure located below:.

Risk Disclosure: Trading the financial markets carries a high risk and may not be suitable for all investors. Trading on margin and utilizing leverage can carry an even higher level of risk that can lead to a complete loss of investment funds. Before deciding to trade the financial markets, you should carefully and diligently consider your personal investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. Because a possibility exists that you could potentially sustain a significant loss, you should NOT invest or trade any capital that you cannot afford to lose. It is your responsibility to be aware of and understand all risks associated with trading the financial markets, and to seek professional advice from an independent certified financial advisor if you have any doubts.

Many student-athletes suffer injuries as a result of poor nutrition, hydration, and overuse due to poor training techniques. The good news is that majority of student-athletes injuries can be prevented.

Student Athletics and Parents Course

The key to a student-athlete success is finding colleges that are a great fit academically, athletically, financially, geographically, and socially, and if any of those 5 factors are out of balance, a student-athlete will in most instances have a very difficult time with college.

While there is a limited number of student-athlete recruiting courses being offered today, the Youth Branding University Student-Athlete Course encompasses far more than simply the athletic recruiting process, as there are many more factors that go into the recruiting process than simply generating interest from college coaches and trying to receive an athletic scholarship.

Our course is meant to serve as a complete guide for every factor that contributes to the success of the middle school to high school student-athletes wishing to play at the collegiate level.

The Youth Branding University Student-Athlete Course is broken down into 11 unique sessions that cover over 90 individual topics that provide the groundwork for all high school athletes that wish to continue their athletic career in college.

Inasmuch, the Youth Branding University Student-Athlete Course was designed to provide parents, student-athletes, administrators, coaches, and counselors with the most detailed information on the college application and athletic recruiting process for aspiring high school athletes who wish to continue their athletic career at the college level.
