PwC Sets Guinness World Record

New York-based PwC (FY12 gross revenues of $ 10.15 billion) partners and staff throughout Southern California, Arizona and Nevada joined thousands of local students and community organizations Playworks and Junior Achievement to set the Guinness World Records title for “The Largest Simultaneous Financial Literacy Lesson in Multiple Locations.”

The record was accomplished by 841 PwC volunteers and 4,783 students in 18 schools across three states. The initiative is part of PwC’s Earn Your Future campaign, a $160 million investment created to address youth education with a focus on financial literacy. PwC volunteers taught third-, fourth- and fifth-graders lessons on spending, saving and investing, as well as planning and other money management concepts.
