FAST-Track Program

The purpose of the FAST-Track program is to expose students from underserved communities to the broader world of business and finance. The curriculum consists of regular one on one mentoring from an industry leader, onsite office field trips to leading financial institutions and awards financial scholarships to address unexpected college expenses which can impede academic focus.

It has proven to be one of my favorite conferences because of the quality of the attendees and also the opportunity to be able to support the FAST-Track kids program. We get to hear their testimonials and how the interaction with the mentors has been able to change their lives.”
