About KWHS

About Knowledge@Wharton High School

The mission of KWHS, a member of the Knowledge @Wharton global network, is to promote global financial literacy, entrepreneurship and leadership among high school students and educators by providing free innovative educational content. KWHS publishes a global online business journal for high school students interested in exploring all the ways that business touches their lives. In addition, KWHS creates opportunities for students and educators to explore their business-related interests both inside and outside of the classroom through lesson plans, summer programs and educational challenges.

KWHS Global Leaders Network

The KWHS Global Leaders Network is an exciting new online platform for innovative high schools that are committed to enhancing leadership, entrepreneurship and financial literacy opportunities for all students and educators. Member high schools receive exclusive access to resources and opportunities for educators and students who want to explore and pursue their business, entrepreneurship and leadership interests both inside and outside the classroom. The KWHS Global Leaders Network is not a structured program that requires resources from its members to manage. The KWHS Global Leaders Network is an online platform that gives educators and students the freedom to decide how best to use its resources to enhance teaching and learning.

The KWHS Leaders Program

The KWHS Leaders Program is a select internship program for University of Pennsylvania undergraduates.  Only a small number of students are selected to join the Leaders Program each year (“Scholars”).  Scholars have a wonderful opportunity to enhance a multitude of skills, including but not limited to, leadership, teamwork, communication and management.  Scholars are required to volunteer at least 10 hours a week leading projects that are pertinent to KWHS’s mission of promoting financial literacy, entrepreneurship and leadership among high school students from around the world.

The work of the 2011-2012 Scholars was featured in the Daily Pennsylvania.
