Teens in our community need financial guidance and skills. Too often they are left to learn the hard way about the importance of budgeting, savings, banking and credit.

You can be part of the solution for teens as a volunteer in our Money Sense program. Every year, Money Sense brings hundreds of volunteers from the local community into high school classrooms to lead lessons on financial basics that truly make a positive impact on the lives and behaviors of teens.
The Money Sense program consists of 3 lessons (budgeting & saving, managing a bank account, credit). Each lesson is about 90 minutes long and takes place in a classroom setting (whether at a local high school or community based organization). Students learn through hands-on activities, group discussions, role-play games, and videos. Volunteers lead the presentation, drive discussions, and guide students through activities.

We provide our volunteer instructors with everything they need to be successful in the classroom! No experience is necessary, but a basic understanding of money management concepts is helpful (how to budget and save, how to manage a checking account, how to using credit responsibly). We will provide the training, curriculum, and materials. We encourage professionals from all industries to volunteer. The most important thing is that you are passionate about working with teens!
The time commitment for this opportunity is small. You must be able to:

  • commit to deliver at least one full set of lessons per year (about 5 hours of classroom time, usually spread over 3-6 weeks)
  • attend a 2 hour in-person or webinar training, or complete online training (about 1 hour)

Once you sign up as a volunteer through the SecureFutures website, you will start to receive email notifications of upcoming opportunities, which are scheduled year-round. When an opportunity fits into your schedule, simply reply to the email!
