Growing up in a tiny town outside Houston, Kameron Kindle watched his parents working for themselves, his mother as a beautician and his father as a contract truck driver, without any professional financial guidance.
“Nobody in the family had an advisor or had anyone to teach them how to manage money well,” he says.
But now Kindle, 24, is one of 1,950 students enrolled in the FPA’s virtual internship program, launched almost overnight to replace internships canceled nationwide due to the coronavirus pandemic.
