Two exceptional financial wellness/literacy organizations we regularly support include the North Carolina Council on Economic Education (NCCEE) and Junior Achievement (JA). Volunteers members lend their time and knowledge to help educate and support high school students. These opportunities range in time commitment, activity type, and time of year. Examples include speaking engagements, competition judging, regional group service, and subject matter expert guidance… Want to become a volunteer? Contact us!
North Carolina Council on Economic Education (NCCEE)
In July 2019, North Carolina passed House Bill 924 which mandates an economics and personal finance (EPF) course. Beginning with 2020 high school freshmen, students must complete this requirement prior to graduation. The North Carolina Council on Economic Education (NCCEE) is leading the initiative regarding this legislation.
Junior Achievement (JA)
Volunteers go into classes to present financial literacy programs. While social distancing measures are in place, volunteers are asked to create their introduction of the section sharing brief personal insights and stories.
