        People who can help and inform themselves have a big advantage.  Here are a few good articles that can a start building knowledge.  A couple of things to remember, it doesn't require a lot of resources to be successful, it just requires using the right ones and avoiding the wrong ones.   At the same time, please note, there are no perfect resources.  Some pieces apply to some situations while in some cases the people haven't acquired the necessary skills sets yet. (None of the following paid to be on this page.)

Edx.org - The Harvard and MIT joint effort to help all types of learners access great educational opportunities.  I have taken several of their courses and love them.  Lots of other universities have now joined them.  (Not for profit)

Coursera.org  - Lots of courses from great colleges, too.  I have liked many of these courses as well. (For profit)

Money doesn't cure diseases, people do ......
  Money doesn't solve problems, people do.

There are some incredible people around ....

Please remember that no person or organization can be all things to all people. 
Everyone is different.  It is up to parents and teens to decide who they listen to and what they learn to do.  It is wise to have more than one resource.
