Make a Lasting Impact Through Financial Education
Understanding personal finance fundamentals is a key component of adulting. Yet most high school students graduate without the requisite knowledge to effectively navigate the financial world. One of the greatest investments one can make is empowering others to take control of their financial futures. Joining our growing team of volunteers offers you the opportunity to do just that!
Bringing Our Programming to Life
Financial Beginnings provides no-cost financial education programming to schools and non-profit organizations, offering much needed lessons on budgeting, banking, taxes, financing college, credit, investing, and more. But what really sets us apart are the volunteers who engage program participants with their personal and professional life experiences. Volunteers serve as positive role models, adding richness to individuals' learning.
We provide everything you need to become a volunteer and effectively deliver personal finance lessons.
As a volunteer, you are supported every step of the way, from curriculum training to devising your lesson plan. If you've never taught in the classroom or over webinar before, we're there to prepare you in both settings and to ensure you feel comfortable teaching your first class and every class afterwards.
Sign up for a volunteer orientation today to see if it's a right fit for you. Get a preview of our unbiased curriculum and find out how you can contibute to empowering others through financial education.
Supporting in Other Ways
Some may not feel comfortable teaching our programming right away, or ever. We get it. But there's more to impacting individuals and communities than teaching alone. We also rely on volunteers to provide valuable support for special events and conferences, professional panels and forums, fundraising campaigns, and guidance in our continual efforts to refine and improve our curricula. So if you want to volunteer, but are not quite ready to step in front of participants, there are still many, many opportunities to get involved and make an impact!
