This April marks the eleventh anniversary of the Federal Reserve Bank’s commitment to the Teach Children to Save program, a national initiative created by the American Banker’s Association. Volunteers are needed to visit local classrooms to share a lesson about the importance of saving. In 2015, volunteers visited 434 classrooms and reached approximately 9,186 kindergarten through third grade students. Your help is needed to help to meet this incredible demand, April 25-May 6.
The program matches volunteers with a teacher to provide literature-based lessons about savings and money management that also tie into the Bank’s objectives to serve majority-minority populations.
All training and materials will be provided – no previous experience is necessary. The time commitment includes a 45-minute lesson and travel time to and from the school. The time of the visit is mutually agreed upon by the volunteer and teacher, allowing impact on your work to be minimal. Once classes have been registered, you can are view all available classes and register as a volunteer here. For questions, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
