Greenwood Project introduces youth to careers within the financial industry via paid summer internships, educational field trips and our summer financial institute for high school students. In many cases, our programming gives young people strong motivation to succeed in their remaining high school tenure and also a compelling reason to attend college.
As a result of our exposure initiatives, recent college graduates have received employment offers from top financial companies. Other students have changed their college majors as they are now interested in financial services opportunities.
The Greenwood Project model works! As a result of our programs, our college grads continue to receive employment offers after completion of their internship.
Greenwood students have gained real-world experience, networking connections, and unmatched exposure to the financial industry.
Our ultimate goal is to build a true diversity pipeline for minority students to enter the financial services industry.
