RTSWS Visits Charlotte, NC!

Ahead of our Fall Financial & Investment Literacy Sessions, RTSWS Program Coordinator Katie Chikwinya had the opportunity to visit our growing number of participating schools in Charlotte, NC.

On her trip, Katie was welcomed by faculty and our School Champions at South Mecklenburg High School, York Comprehensive High School, West Charlotte High School and Fort Mill High School.

School Champions are the talented teachers and school administrators who serve as organizers, advocates and cheerleaders for our RTSWS cohorts. They play a crucial role in our success. 

We are so grateful to our School Champions for all of their incredible hard work and support throughout the school year!

Showing Up is Important for Your Education, Career and Life
Whether it is class, a job or a RTSWS session, attendance is important! Every day is an opportunity to learn, make connections and ultimately, set yourself up for success in life.
Here are 3 tips for positive attendance this school year:
1. Develop Meaningful Connections: Invest time in cultivating relationships with your teachers, advisors, and RTSWS volunteers. These individuals can evolve into strong advocates and invaluable mentors who support your academic pursuits, career and overarching life aspirations.
2. Establish Consistent Routines: Create a structured routine that encompasses a regular sleep schedule and a well-planned morning routine. By ensuring you get ample rest and start your day with intention, you'll be better equipped to tackle whatever lies ahead.

3. Access Available Support:
 Whenever a scheduling conflict arises due to a makeup class or sports practice, don't hesitate to communicate. Reach out to your teacher or the RTSWS School Champion if you find yourself unable to attend a session. They can assist in devising strategies to attend sessions or help you formulate a plan to catch up on missed content.
