Top companies are working with NAF to invest in their future.

When it comes to workforce development, top companies are investing time and resources to make work-based learning experiences happen at the high school level—from job shadowing to mock interviews to paid internships.

By engaging with NAF academies, they’re not just providing students with valuable experiences—they’re creating pathways back to their communities for future employees and increasing the local pool of diverse, skilled talent.

NAF’s Impact

NAF started as one NAF Academy of Finance in New York City in 1980 and has grown to serve over 100,000 students annually in more than 600 across the country in high-need communities, focusing on growing industries including finance, hospitality and tourism, information technology, engineering, and health sciences.

In 2018, NAF academies reported a graduation rate of 99%, with 87% of graduates planning to attend college. Learn more about the NAF academies in your state.

"If you don’t know what you might be interested in, you can’t pursue it. By the time students are in college, a whole group of students who might have the aptitude but did not get the exposure are lost to my corporation."

— Scott Smith, Senior Vice President, Human Resources Operations, AT&T
