Fall Wall Street Experience Field Trip


The Wall Street field trip is a capstone experience whereby students are given a rare glimpse into corporate office settings and the workplaces and work lives of financiers.

The experience allows the students to shadow female treasury officers, wealth managers, comptrollers, accountants, entrepreneurs, and more. For many of our students, this is their first glimpse into the world of finance, opening their eyes to a new world of possibilities.

Listen to one of our students describe the process of going through the program and realizing that finance could be for her as well, not just “men in suits.”

Spring Mentorship


Leadership Series for Early Onboarding

Students – Please register for the Spring Mentorship using the RTSWS Mobile App.

The Rock The Street, Wall Street Mentorship Program is designed to encourage racially diverse high school, secondary school and sixth form girls in the U.S., U.K. and Canada to take a strong interest in their personal finances and to explore the possibility of a career in the financial services industry. In the spring, we pair female students with seasoned female financial professionals.

Our spring mentorship program aims to provide positive role models, prepare students for college/university, and build key skills for career readiness. Mentors offer a firsthand insight into the professional world, guiding their proteges on savings, investments, interview skills, resume/CV preparation, professionalism, confidence-building and career interests. The overarching goal is to empower female students, encouraging them to take charge of their financial lives while gaining early access to lucrative internship and job opportunities in the financial sector.
