If you have a few hours to introduce teens to financial literacy, then Financial Backpack is the right program for you. Volunteer to teach basic financial skills to low-income, high school students about finance and the keys to a successful financial future.
Any member who is interested in financial literacy can participate. Volunteers are supported in the classroom by members of the faculty and graduate students. No prior experience is required, but volunteers should be familiar with the basic principles of financial management.
