DRW COLLEGE PREP - Changing Lives One Student at a Time

DRW College Prep students engage in a lively discussion.

Although DRW College Prep is financially self-sustaining, the DRW Trading Group foundation strives to offer opportunities for DRW employees to volunteer with students and teachers.

DRW College Prep students leverage technology in the classroom.

In the November 2015 issue of MarketWatch, FIA features DRW College Prep, giving a glimpse inside the school and sharing its success despite the challenges faced by its students:

"In a Chicago neighborhood where the number of violent crime reports ranks 9th among Chicago’s 77 communities, DRW College Prep is making a difference in the lives of hundreds of high school students.

DRW College Prep sits just six miles away from its benefactor, Chicago-based principal trading firm DRW. Through the school, DRW and its founder and CEO, Don Wilson, are helping bridge the gap between poverty and prosperity. DRW funded a significant portion of the startup costs to launch DRW College Prep and continues to partner with the school—providing both financial and human resources.

Wilson is passionate about education. “When I think about how to allocate philanthropy and volunteer time, I am most interested in projects that have a long-term impact on improving the community in which we live,” he says. “Nothing comes closer to accomplishing that than education.”
