About W!SE

W!SE was founded in 1998 with a mission to improve the lives of young people through programs that develop financial literacy and readiness for college and the workforce. Our initiatives, built on five pillars – relevancy, real world experiences, strong partnerships, volunteerism, evaluation and assessment reach low-to moderate income communities nationally.

W!SE’s Financial Literacy Certification program strengthens the quality of personal finance instruction in secondary schools through teacher training and curriculum support and measures student achievement when they take our national standardized Financial Literacy Certification Test. Students passing the Test become Certified Financially Literate™.
