Volunteers will challenge students to apply personal money management skills in their own lives, starting now so they are more ready for saving and spending later in life! Topics include currency, methods of payment, smart shopping, online safety, needs, wants and goals, budgeting, and basic investing. Volunteers must attend a training session. Dollars With Sense is currently offered as a virtual program and will be offered in classrooms again once conditions allow.

Please note that all volunteer positions require careful screening, and some may require a Police Vulnerable Sector Check (PVSC). Not all applicants will be accepted.

Thank you for your interest in volunteering! The registration process takes about 15 minutes.
