Earn Your Future

Earn Your Future

As a firm, our collective skills and knowledge around math and financial literacy give us an opportunity to better prepare our nation’s youth to make responsible decisions, be productive citizens, and contribute to a healthier economy. This is why we focus on youth education and, more specifically, financial literacy. In 2012, we launched PwC’s Earn Your Future (EYF) – a $160 million commitment – enabling our 39,000 people to share their time, skills, and talents to impact the next generation of leaders. Our goal is to provide 1 million service hours and reach more than 2.5 million students and educators over five years.

  • Service hours: 1,000,000

In assessing the youth financial literacy crisis in our country, we have come to realize that some of the most prevalent underlying issues stem from a lack of core curriculum and resources in low-performing schools. We direct our efforts at all points in the learning continuum, collaborating with select non-profit organizations along the way. We have also created our own free financial literacy curriculum, to provide much needed curricula and resources to make it easier to teach these critical skills.

Our youth education efforts are supported, in part, by the following organizations: Clinton Global Initiative, Junior Achievement, The First Tee, DonorsChoose.org, MIND Research Institute, United Way, Peacework, and Knowledge@Wharton High School.
