FWSF Partners with Rock The Street to Promote Financial Literacy

In partnership with Rock The Street, Wall Street (RTS), in the fall of 2022 FWSF volunteers taught high school students about finance and investments, including budgeting, investments and the stock market, at Woodside High School, Woodside, CA. In the winter/spring semester of 2023 FWSF volunteers will be providing mentorship to students on various topics depending upon their grade level: resume writing, use of LinkedIn, interviewing, looking for college scholarships, etc. The aim is to personalize topics based on the needs of the student.
