The WesGold Fellows Program

There is a known critical gap between the need for financial education in Philadelphia and the presence of innovative and comprehensive programs for students. WesGold Fellows was started in 2007 with the purpose of being a bridge that covers the gap between financial disparity and educational inequality. We are a comprehensive youth development program. Initially serving high school students, our Fellows now range from ages 14 to 21. VestedIn provides a paid personal and professional development opportunity for young adults focused on financial literacy, real estate and entrepreneurship.
