TSS provides a unique conduit for qualified, ambitious, and underrepresented young professionals
Discover career opportunities available in Finance and Accounting.
From wealth management and consulting to investment banks and hedge funds, The Street Smarts has connected students from all different types of backgrounds to various opportunities in the Financial sector. This aids students to develop their full potential and to pursue their dream.
The TSS Accounting Scholars program will work with college students to introduce them to career opportunities in the Accounting field. We encourage our scholars to strive to become part of something that is a little bit bigger than themselves. It is in this manner that they will stretch themselves and grow into excellence and achievement throughout their career.
The Street Smarts has established a Speaker’s series where finance industry leaders speak to high school and college students to encourage and educate them about their financial careers and the importance of money management skills. The Street Smarts will recruit potential future scholars at these events.
The Street Smarts will be working with high school students from the East Bay area, San Francisco, and in Chicago to introduce financial literacy concepts. Students who learn to manage their finances early and often become adults who are better equipped to live independently. By teaching young adults to make good financial decisions, they learn to pay down debt or avoid it altogether.

“The internship program has made me realize my true potential as an
undocumented student of color in the finance world. I have enjoyed learning sales negotiation strategies and conducting investment research reports.”
“What I appreciate the most out of The Street Smarts is that we not only
accept but we strive for diversity of thought which thanks to that, we have plenty of perspectives for any given situation.”

“You have to understand accounting and you have to understand the nuances of accounting. It’s the language of business and it’s an imperfect language, but unless you are willing to put in the effort to learn accounting – how to read and interpret financial statements – you really shouldn’t select stocks yourself.”
The Street Smarts (TSS) is an Oakland based nonprofit that provides a unique opportunity for historically disadvantaged youth to explore all aspects of financial and accounting management.
