Rock the Street, Wall Street (RTSWS) has collaborated with the Financial Women of San Francisco (FWSF) to bring financial literacy education to high school girls at Gateway High School. This effort is part of RTSWS’s ongoing commitment to enhance the understanding of financial and investment fundamentals among diverse student groups.

The engagement at Gateway High School, a public charter school known for its inclusive approach to education, focuses on exposing students to the practical and theoretical aspects of finance. This aligns with the school’s goal of providing a comprehensive educational pathway that prepares all students for college, regardless of their socio-economic background.

Volunteers from FWSF, including Anne Chambers, Kim Scala, Lyssa Holman Grimaldo CFP®, CDFA™, and Jennifer Lin, have participated in this initiative. Their involvement brings a real-world perspective to the students, illustrating the breadth of opportunities available in the financial sector.

The program aims to inspire the students by demonstrating the potential career paths in finance and the importance of financial knowledge in personal and professional settings. By interacting directly with professionals from FWSF, the students gain valuable insights into the financial industry, which is essential for young women considering a future in finance.

This collaboration with FWSF is a part of RTSWS’s broader strategy to integrate the M in STEM—Mathematics—into young women’s education, preparing them for successful careers in STEM fields, including finance.
