Money lessons for teens (while still doing what they love most.)

My 15 year old daughter is in an economics course this semester and loves it. I'm looking for ideas to help her learn even more. I've tried many ways to give her a leg oupon money matters and she's resisted strongly until now. I'm looking for books, clubs, activities, websites, podcasts, movies, methods in practice, you name it (including specific actions I can take) that will help her learn to manage money and get a grasp on investing all while doing the very things she loves so that she sees that money is not the end-all-be-all. What have you or others you know done to help teens learn about money and put those principles into action?

I am a bisexual guy at a religious high school in Atlanta, GA and, while there isn't much homo-hostility, the majority of my classmates are uncomfortable with homosexuality. (And that's including the gay ones.) I'd like to meet interesting people outside of my school, but I haven't the first clue how to start. How is a bi high school guy supposed to meet like-minded individuals outside of school?
