Strong 2018 Shows Promise For 2019

RTSWS more than doubled the number of its cities from 6 to 13 in 2018. Since its founding in 2013, more than 1,750 girls have gone through the RTSWS program (750 girls in the past year alone). Since our inception, students’ comprehension of financial concepts improved by an average of 97%; 67% report being “very” or “extremely” likely to pursue a major or minor in finance, economics, or business.

Rock The Street, Wall Street’s latest addition, Kansas City, is one of several new cities scheduled to join our programming ranks for the 2019/20 academic year. This, coupled with more schools and sponsors in existing cities, mean RTSWS is on track to have its greatest impact yet in the upcoming 2019/20 school year.

Weekly Spotlight

We’re bringing attention to the rock stars who help make RTSWS the success it is. This week, we’re starting with a student who tells us how we changed her opinion on math and her course selection. 

Lillian Dacke, Student at VR Eaton High School, Ft. Worth, TX

Rock the Street, Wall Street has helped me understand that math is extremely important, not only just in accounting and applying it into anything that TD Ameritrade does, but also in everyday life.

I’ve taken a lot of new classes this year that, because of Rock the Street, Wall Street, I already knew what I was going to be doing and I could prepare and study for them properly.”
