Working in Support of Education (W!se) is a leading national educational nonprofit with a mission to improve economic mobility through programs that develop financial literacy and readiness for college and careers. Our initiatives are built on 5 pillars – relevancy, real-world experiences, partnerships, volunteerism, and evaluation. Based in New York City, our programs transform the lives of Americans across the United States. We are spearheading a national effort to empower people, especially the underserved, to lead lives of financial well-being, succeed in college and excel in an increasingly competitive global workplace.
