One of our flagship programs is the annual Finance Boot Camp for students. This boot camp continues to grow and improve thanks to a dynamic lineup of diverse speakers and workshops, as well as fantastic educational material like our Finance Boot Camp Report. The goal of the boot camp is to educate college and high school students on the various careers and opportunities in the finance industry and expand the pipeline of Latino professionals.
On Saturday, September 26th from 9am-3pm, we will host our 6th finance boot camp for up to 100 students at the BlackRock office in San Francisco. BlackRock, Charles Schwab and other Bay Area corporations are graciously sponsoring the event. The boot camp will include several workshops and presentations including an industry review, sub-industry workshops on private equity, real estate and asset management, and speed networking sessions. Students will enjoy a catered breakfast, lunch and a post-event mixer with LIF members and corporate sponsors.
Reaching 100+ Latina/o students interested in learning about finance on a Saturday is not easy, so we need your help. Please help us identify students for the Finance Boot Camp and encourage them to register on this page.
Want to volunteer? If you are interested in leading or helping with a workshop, please reach out to Gustavo Mena, who is the main coordinator for the event.
We look forward to your support in hosting another successful and memorable Finance Boot Camp.
