Financial Education for Girls

Rock The Street, Wall Street, (TM), is a financial literacy program designed to spark the interest of high school girls into careers of finance.

 

How RTSWS Works

Rock The Street, Wall Street (TM), (RTSWS), a 501(c3), is a financial literacy program with three components: Financial literacy workshops, one-to-one mentoring with professional financial females and “Wall Street Experience” field trips to financial industry offices.

 

Financial Literacy Workshops

RTSWS offers financial literacy workshops using The Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania, based curriculum.  At the workshops, the girls learn about investing, banking, budgeting and leadership. Sessions are offered through local schools or civic organizations during:

  • * Fall and Spring Intercession
  • * Winterim Session
  • * After school club

 

Mentorship

Those students wanting a mentor will be matched with a female professional currently working in the financial services industry.  Mentors provide an introduction into financial careers and a deeper understanding of financial concepts as well as advice on college paths.  Mentors will meet with their mentees monthly, virtually or in person, to discuss the student’s plans for future education, careers and internships.  Through this one to one exchange, the girls are offered a chance to connect with role models. Academic research confirms that exposing girls to career role models goes a long way in helping them visualize themselves in those careers.

 

Wall Street Experiences

How better to inspire young women to work on Wall Street than taking them there?  Our students will visit a company in the financial services industry or a corporate finance department. These experiences offer students an opportunity to see successful females at work, ask candid questions and visualize their own financial career paths.
