Volunteer with the Institute
The Institute has many opportunities for volunteers to contribute their
time and effort to helping the Institute promote effective financial education and counseling. If you would like to volunteer
in a capacity not described below, give us a call!
Volunteer Educator (Portland, Maine)
If you are interested in volunteering
to provide financial literacy education in your community, let us know!
Volunteer Educators work with the Institute and a local sponsoring organization
(examples include but are not limited to neighborhood organizations, community
centers, fraternal organizations, religious organizations of any faith,
etc) to plan a financial education course or courses based on educational
materials developed by the Institute.
Outreach Volunteer (Portland, Maine)
A great opportunity for those that
don’t have time to teach others,
but still want to help! Help the Institute increase awareness of the importance
of financial literacy education in your community. Outreach Volunteers
work with the Institute to develop informal community based networks by
occasionally discussing general financial literacy topics (like the importance
of saving money) in a non-confrontational manner with their friends, co-workers
and neighbors. Outreach Volunteers also encourage people to learn more
about managing their money by writing letters to the editor of local newspapers,
posting information on community bulletin boards, or blogging on social
networking sites such as MySpace or Facebook.
Volunteer Office Support (Portland, Maine)
Help with filing, data entry, putting
together mailings and answering the phones is always appreciated.
