Mentors: Volunteer Opportunities

Current volunteer opportunities available for Money Mentors:

Summer is usually a quiet time for volunteer events. Please check this page as well as the "Timely Thoughts" emails regularly for news of new events in need of help from volunteers.

Ongoing Efforts

Teaching 2nd and 3rd Graders

We collaborate with CU Plus Credit Union and Rantoul schools to provide short (15-20 minute) financial education activities once a month.  We could use more help with this project during the school year.  Please let us know if you're interested and would like more information.  Training and curriculum provided!

Youth Financial Literacy

More and more afterschool and in-school opportunities keep popping up to help youth (typically elementary school-age) learn about money. If you're interested in this as a volunteer opportunity, please let Kathy Sweedler know (sweedler@illinois.edu). You would typically work with other volunteers to provide the lessons.

Admin Committee

A new committee that would meet every 3-4 weeks that would advise about Money Mentors and help get things done. If you're interested in being a part of this, please let Kathy Sweedler know, sweedler@illinois.edu.

Facebook Page

If you'd like to be part of the group that finds interesting information to post, please let me know. We also need people to "like" and comment on our public Facebook page -- this will increase how often Facebook sends our posts to people who've liked the page.
