Recruiting Organization: My Money Workshop

My Money Workshop (MMW) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization based in the NY metropolitan area, serving New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut. MMW’s mission is to help students and community members develop financial strategies and skills for a better life, avoiding costly, long-lasting mistakes. We educate people to manage their finances wisely and make a lifetime of informed decisions.

Dick Yaffa, a Bedford, NY, philanthropist, loved giving back to his local community and often visited his alma matter, Princeton University, to speak with students. After numerous conversations with college and high school students, Dick recognized that students and young adults entering the workforce lacked basic money management skills. Dick founded My Money Workshop in 2009 to address the need for financial literacy and the lack of financial education in schools. Since Dick’s passing in 2015, his family has continued his legacy and commitment to teaching and providing financial literacy to people who need it.

MMW’s vision is for everyone to access high-quality financial education and feel empowered to make the best financial decisions for themselves and their families. We serve as a premier financial literacy provider to youth and adults, enabling participants and the communities we serve to improve their lives by achieving their financial short-term and long-term goals.

MMW partners with schools and community-based organizations to deliver customized workshops. We have created financial literacy courses designed for a one-period class during the school day, an all-summer program for campers, an eight-week program for unemployed and underemployed adults -- and everything in between. Workshops are delivered by volunteer instructors who are experts from all financial industries.

My Money Workshop offers our volunteer instructors teaching opportunities within their local working area and close to their homes all over the New York Tri-State area, but mainly in Westchester County. The commitment to volunteer is very manageable ... a few workshops a year. Opportunities to volunteer on a more frequent basis are also available.

Length of workshops are based on particular school/program needs and typically range from 1 to 2 hours. Presentation and handout(s) are e-mailed to the partner and instructor approximately one week before the scheduled workshop. Volunteer instructors provide a survey link to participants on day of the workshop to access/complete pre- and post- surveys.
