About

Volunteers are needed to teach financial literacy classes to incarcerated women in the Houston area. Classes are only offered during the day on Fridays. Our ideal volunteer for this opportunity possesses basic knowledge of personal finance and is passionate about educating and empowering women leaving jail and reintegrating into their community.

Volunteers for this specific opportunity must be able to

  • Observe at least two classes before teaching
  • Teach classes during the day on Fridays
  • Teach one 90 minute class every other month
  • Attend a 90 minute Volunteer Orientation offered by The Women's Resource (offered monthly)
  • Attend an annual 4 hour Jail Training (offered quarterly)
  • Pass a TB Skin Test
  • Pass a criminal background screening
  • Supply current Driver's License and Social Security Card with Application

There is no need to be a finance expert to volunteer! Our curriculum, created by the FDIC , offers instructor guides which we pair with tips from our most experienced volunteers. Throughout the year we offer events and workshops to improve your skills as an instructor and meet fellow volunteers. First time volunteers will be paired with a more experienced volunteer for at least their first two classes at the jail.
