Financial Literacy Program Volunteer Info Session

Wednesday, October 23, 2019 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM
Boston Bar Association - 16 Beacon Street, Boston, MA


Description:

Learn about how you can volunteer with the BBA's M. Ellen Carpenter Financial Literacy Program and help high school students across Massachusetts build the foundational skills to make informed and effective decisions regarding their finances. Keynote speaker State Senator James B. Eldridge will speak about the importance of financial literacy education for young people, and longtime volunteers will explain how the program works and how you can get involved!

The Financial Literacy curriculum consists of three classroom modules covering Personal Finance and Budgeting; Using Credit and Credit Cards; and Financing a Large Purchase, along with a mock trial presentation in the United States Bankruptcy Court.
 
This info session is open to all attorneys, law students and legal staff interested in volunteering with the program. It will cover an overview of the program and materials, and explain how volunteering works. 
 
We hope you will consider getting involved!

The M. Ellen Carpenter Financial Literacy Program is made possible through the support of the Boston Bar Foundation's Charles P. Normandin Fund.
