PwC

PwC is a global network of firms with more than 223,000 people in 157 countries providing professional services in audit, assurance, tax and consulting. Creating value for our clients, our people and the communities we live and work in is at the heart of PwC. And what binds us together is one common purpose – to build trust in society and solve important problems.

At PwC, we believe that all students have the potential to be tomorrow’s leaders and technology-driven workforce. Access Your Potential is our commitment to help close the opportunity gap by equipping young people from disadvantaged communities, who may otherwise be excluded from the workforce, with the financial, technology and career-selection skills they need to change the trajectory of their lives.

Access Your Potential is PwC’s  5-year, $320 million commitment, focused on:

  • Providing 10 million students with access to financial capability and/or technology skills curricula, including career advice

  • Training 100,000 teachers and guidance counselors to prepare and guide students in making sound financial choices and understanding technology-based careers; and

  • Mentoring 10,000 students to choose the right college for the right career.

Both PwC and the PwC Charitable Foundation, Inc. play a significant role in improving financial literacy, technology skills and college and career readiness for underserved populations across the United States. Through firm contributions, the skills and time of our people, and grants from the PwC Charitable Foundation, Inc., a separate, 501(c)(3) public charity, we are positioned to impact millions of students and educators by 2022.  For more information visit: http://www.pwc.com/us/accessyourpotential
