Introducing our first team of Corps

Our first six corps just completed their first week of intensive training.  Each day they had to master the literature on an entire subject (respectively: Poverty, globally & domestically; Data collection & analysis/business planning/innovation; Counseling skills; Financial planning; Foreclosure), and within 24 hours submit a one-page “White Paper” on the subject.

Next week they will begin a 5-day case-based counseling “boot-camp.” June 22 they will begin at their placements.

While the particulars of each placement might vary slightly, each corps will spend this summer not only analyzing the FC model and innovating ways to improve it, but more importantly they will be providing financial consultation to NYC residents in economic distress.

While we only had 6 placements, and we began to recruit late into the summer internship recruiting cycle, we received almost 30 applications for summer FC Corps (internship) positions.  21 of these made it to the phone-screen/behavioral interview, 12 of these made it the in-person, case-based interview. In the end, only 7 were given offers.

We proudly introduce our first six FC Corps:

Camille Avena, from Fordham University

Deeksha Gulati, from the University of Pennsylvania

Forbes Huang, from NYU

Joe Schiavo, from Vassar College

Joshua Williams, from Columbia University

Kentaro Yoshida, from Boston University

Please see our “About” page for each corps’ bio and head-shot.
