Bridges to Wealth

Bridges to Wealth (B2W) is an innovative financial empowerment program focused on students, parents, and local community partners. B2W’s goal is to increase the wealth-generating capabilities of families living in underserved neighborhood. Professor Keith Weigelt, the Marks-Darivoff Family Professor of Strategy at The Wharton School, and Dr. Jill Bazelon, a graduate of Penn Graduate School of Education, founded B2W in 2012. It became a program of the Netter Center in 2019.  Dr. Weigelt serves as the faculty advisor and teaches an Academically Based Community Service (ABCS) course that involves Penn students learning by teaching financial literacy in local schools.
