Fast Track Application 2019-2020
The FAST Track Application MUST be in by WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 9th 2019.
The Fast Track program is a rigorous 9-month program that exposes inner-city high school students to the financial services industry and meets at Goldman Sachs. 200 West Street, 12th Floor, New York, NY 10281 (Across from the Liberty Building/Near Battery Park). Beginning October 16th 2019 & ending in June 2020. Students meet with mentors twice a month and focus on developing skills in two key areas: financial aptitude and career/personal development. If you are interested in ECONOMICS, FINANCE, ACCOUNTING, MATH, ENTREPRENEURSHIP, INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS, REAL ESTATE or BANKING as a CAREER choice and hoping for a career on WALL STREET or in, PLEASE APPLY!!!!
FOR STUDENT ATHLETES! VERY IMPORTANT! PLEASE READ:
If you are a student athlete and have sports obligations such as Football, Soccer, Track & Field, Basketball, Lacrosse, etc., during the FASTTRACK Wednesday sessions; you are being advised to think about this very seriously. We encourage Sports if it gets you to your desired goal and education with positive outcomes, but this year we WILL NOT allow sports programs and late afternoon games to interfere with important sessions. Many of you in the past few years, have not been able to manage both successfully. Getting to FAST Track at 7:15pm or 7:45pm after a game does not serve you well, since FASTTRACK ends at 8pm. YOU have to know if you can handle both seriously.
YOU MUST FILL OUT THIS APPLICATION WITH YOUR PARENTS KNOWLEDGE AND CONSENT
Your Parents/Guardians must be aware of your participating in the FAST Track, which takes place every two weeks on a Wednesday, from 5:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Students MUST fill out the form entirely and complete the essays by the DEADLINE of Wednesday, October 9th, 2019. This year there will be NO EXCEPTIONS!!! Upon acceptance into the FAST Track Program, you MUST bring to the first meeting the Parent/Guardian Consent Form that will be emailed to you.
To ensure that your parent/guardian has knowledge of your participating in the FAST Track program, there will be a parent/guardian/FAST Track Mentors Welcome Meeting held on October 30, 2019. We urge all parents/guardians to attend this very important meeting.

FINALLY...If you are not accustomed to being challenged, this program may not be for you. This is a competitive program. KNOW YOURSELF, KNOW YOUR ABILITIES and be willing to grow, understand that the mentors do not play favorites. Come and fight for your place in the world and be mentored by bankers, lawyers, hedge fund professionals, corporate executives, MBA's, financial analysts, financial advisors, etc.
Good Luck to everyone and remember............
"EVERY accomplishment begins with the decision to TRY"
