Volunteers help develop students’ personal money management skills by exploring key elements of personal finance such as spending wisely, budgeting, saving, investing, and using credit. Volunteers must attend a training session. Personal Finance 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.
