WE'RE Closing the
wealth gap thrOUGH social enterprise. 

Bridges to Wealth is a Wharton-based intergenerational program empowering youth and adults with vital business literacy knowledge and life skills. Program revenue directly supports our non-profit initiatives in underserved communities.

 

There's a vast wealth gap that continues to grow.
We believe all people should have equal access to financial education,
services and opportunities but, sadly, the reality is far different.

OUR 2 FOR 1
GIVE BACK PROGRAM

BUY A PROGRAM, GIVE A PROGRAM.
We're a social enterprise who believes in spreading the wealth. That's why we allocate a significant percentage of our revenue to promote business literacy in some of the most underserved communities. 

We designed our two for one giveback program so our clientele can partner with us to fulfill this social mission. Schools who purchase our programs have the opportunity to sponsor classes at two additional local schools attended by students from low wealth households. 

These sponsored schools receive the curriculum and instructors are subsidized to participate in a week-long professional development seminar. Underserved schools are deemed eligible based on the percentage of students who qualify for free or reduced fee lunches.  

AN IVY LEAGUE designed PROGRAM

The educational content of our programs reflects the Ivy League standards of the University of Pennsylvania. Program design and structure reflects the pragmatic approach of Ben Franklin in requiring students to extend classroom concepts to the reality of the business world. Each course fulfills common core standards and is characterized by experiential learning and team-based work.
