Fidelity Investments and Citizen Schools
Fidelity has provided crucial funding to support the growth of Citizen Schools programs across the country, enabling us to increase the number and quality of apprenticeships we deliver to students for more than a decade. Fidelity was also our first Lead Campus Sponsor in 2005, ensuring that a particular school has the resources it needs to provide dynamic, results-oriented programs.
Fidelity’s strong cadre of employee volunteers has provided hundreds of hours of hands-on learning in more than 60 apprenticeships across the country, on topics from financial planning to community problem-solving to website design. They also developed their own financial literacy curriculum, “Invest Like a Millionaire,” which has been taught by Fidelity employees and others in classrooms from California to Massachusetts. Volunteers have also coached students on resume writing, public speaking and interview skills, providing positive role modeling and supporting them on a path towards future success.
Finally, Fidelity has provided many in-kind resources to Citizen Schools, including media and marketing support, and space and volunteers for our signature Six Degrees student networking events, our Executive Briefing, staff trainings and more. Fidelity employees also serve on our National Science and Technology Advisory Committee and on regional boards.
