Recruiting Organization: My Money Workshop

About My Money Workshop

My Money Workshop (MMW) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization based in the NY metropolitan area. 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.

Vision

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.

The Opportunity

We are seeking volunteers to conduct both in-person and virtual workshops on financial literacy. Foundations of Financial Success is a highly effective, well-designed, and cost-effective financial literacy program. Participants build their financial understanding through problem-solving activities, self-reflection, adaptation, and interactive games that provide real-life scenarios to implement a life-long plan for financial success. MMW offers a robust selection of financial education topics via 1 - 2 hour modules covering financial goal setting, budgeting, banking, savings, credit, debt management, student loans, wages, taxes, and other relevant topics to help prepare participants for a path to economic success. MMW addresses specific participant needs throughout the program, empowering participants to remain engaged and complete the program. Our program is aligned with the National Standards for Personal Financial Education.

Trained volunteer instructors deliver our curriculum in person and virtually. Our volunteer instructors are experts across the financial services industry, including financial advisors, asset managers, analysts, bankers, and tax professionals. We also incorporate guest speakers into our workshops so participants have opportunities to learn from a broad array of professionals in real-time. These speakers include local bankers, student loan experts, investors, and many more.

My Money Workshop offers our volunteer instructors teaching opportunities within their local working areas and close to their homes across New York State. The commitment to volunteering is very manageable at only a few workshops a year. Opportunities to volunteer on a more frequent basis are also available. We particularly need instructors to go into program and school settings and teach during the workday and evenings.

One week before the scheduled workshop, the presentation and handout(s) are emailed to the partner and instructor. Volunteer instructors provide a survey link to participants on the day of the workshop to access and complete pre- and post-surveys.
