Spring 2023 Update on Partnership with Rock The Street to Promote Financial Literacy

This Spring FWSF volunteers, in partnership with Rock The Street, Wall Street (RTS), have been mentoring high school students on potential careers, resume writing, used of LinkedIn, internships and preparation for college applications at Woodside High School, Woodside, CA. The aim is to personalize topics based on the needs of the student, including whether they are just starting high school (Freshman) or looking toward their final year of high school (Junior). A big thank you to our FWSF volunteers Andrea Su, Anne Chambers, Connie Wong, Jennifer Lin, Rachel Perkel and Mimi Mengis.
