Blackstone’s Park Hill Group office in Chicago hosted local high-school students who participate in services offered by MoneyThink, a Blackstone Organizational Grant recipient. MoneyThink is a non-profit organization that helps urban youth achieve financial literacy and navigate the financial decisions of adulthood.
When talking to the students, Blackstone employees discussed their own academic and career paths. Ted Gonder, Co-Founder and Executive Director of Money Think, and Frank Schmitz and Larry Thuet, Senior Managing Directors of Park Hill, were at the event. The Park Hill office will host another event in early 2014 to reach a wider pool of students.
