Moneythink was started by a group of freshmen in the College in 2009 as a way to mobilize business-savvy undergraduates to share financial know-how with at-risk students in the local urban community. Ted Gonder, 4th-year in the College, will establish the organization’s first full-time offices in South Chicago after graduating this June, with aims of continuing to expanding economic opportunity for urban youth. The program, which places college students in local urban high schools to mentor urban youth in financial literacy and entrepreneurship, was recently selected by the White House as one of 15 finalists (out of 1400 applicants) competing in the Champions of Change Campus Challenge. Of the 15 finalists, five winners will be selected, based on the number of votes received. Voting ends at 11:59pm on Saturday, March 3rd, so vote for Moneythink at the University of Chicago and share the link with friends before it’s too late!
