Volunteers are needed to teach financial literacy classes to incarcerated women in the Harris County Jail's Re-Entry Program. Classes are only offered during the workday on Fridays.

Our curriculum, created by the FDIC , offers instructor guides which we pair with tips from our most experienced volunteers.
