Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Project Prosper prepares recent working immigrants to participate fully in the economic life of the community through a program of small loans, matched savings, mentoring and financial education.
Project Prosper was founded in 2007 by Ann Haendel and Robin Warren to help integrate recent immigrants living in the Tampa Bay area.
They recognized that economic success in the United States is dependent on access to and a concrete understanding of our financial institutions. They were further aware that immigrants unfamiliar with basic information or having language limitations were being left out of the financial mainstream.
Today Project Prosper is educating immigrants about our financial system and providing them an opportunity to gain experience using this system. By helping immigrants overcome current barriers, Project Prosper is facilitating their economic and social integration into our community.
Project Prosper provides an innovative financial program aimed at promoting successful economic and social integration for immigrants in Pinellas County.
We work cooperatively with agencies, schools and other organizations serving the immigrant community in order to achieve this goal.
