VOLUNTEER TO TEACH FINANCIAL EDUCATION!
Become a part of our organization as a volunteer teacher. The Coalition presents classes to thousands of consumers in NYC. Ranging from high school students to senior citizens, we reach a broad range of New Yorkers with a specific focus on vulnerable populations. Our topics include basic budgeting, saving, managing credit and debt as well as information about student loans and what else you need to know before you enroll in college or trade school.
Come join us! RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org
There's no need for a financial background, simply a passion for helping people navigate the increasingly complicated choices to manage personal finances. Working with classes is fun and satisfying. And teaching won't take up a lot of your time. Once you are trained, we provide power-points, outlines, handouts, everything you need to present a class. Topics include among others: saving, budgeting, managing credit and debt, borrowing for college.
Have other skills? If you have a background as a writer, editor, corporate trainer, marketer, or are fluent in social media—or Spanish or Chinese—you can also help.
We are also seeking help to create educational videos on personal finance topics so please contact us if you can offer some guidance!
Contact email@example.com to volunteer.
Once you are trained, you volunteer for classes at your own convenience. It's interesting and a great way to get out into the community and give back.
