PricewaterhouseCooper LLP has announced an exciting opportunity for educators this summer. They are partnering with Knowledge@Wharton to host a three-day, intensive training focused on learning about financial literacy and classroom application.
PwC-KWHS Seminar for High School Educators on Business and Financial Responsibility.
High school educators are invited to apply to this three-day, intensive training. Sessions will focus on strengthening the attendees’ understanding of financial literacy and business while sharing methods that will enable teachers to immediately incorporate these critical lessons into the classroom. At this one-of-a-kind seminar and professional networking opportunity, high school educators will be surrounded by peers who are actively committed to providing students with the tools to make responsible and informed fiscal decisions throughout their lives.
Wharton professors, PwC executives and industry thought leaders will address topics such as the severe knowledge gap in youth financial literacy and teach valuable skills in leadership, entrepreneurship, and business responsibility.
High school business, finance, math and economics teachers as well as principals, administrators and superintendents, primarily from the Western United States. Given that only 13 states mandate financial literacy, this seminar is offered to educators as a supplement to sate their hunger for credible resources and instruction.
When: June 16-18, 2014
