Oakland Investment Collaborative

Marshawn Lynch spent 12 seasons scoring touchdowns in the NFL.  Now he and his Fam1st Foundation have teamed up with the DIME Program to help high school students in Oakland build wealth. 

About the Collaboration

The Fam1st-DIME collaboration is a free seven-week immersion program that gives high school students the tools and knowledge to build wealth.  Over the course of the program, students will compete (and profit) in an exciting stock market game while also learning about the underpinnings of the capital market system.


There are opportunities to win cash prizes, build new relationships, earn extracurricular credit and receive scholarship awards. Furthermore, students receive training from some of the best minds in
