Teach financial education!
Volunteer to teach at times and locations that are most convenient for you. The teaching experience is invigorating and always a learning experience for everyone involved. CDE will train you and provide all teaching materials.
The next training workshop for volunteers will be on January 21 at Fordham Law School at Lincoln Center, 150 West 62nd St., 4th floor. Please call or email if you would like to attend.
CDE will create a custom curriculum for your nonprofit, school, social service agency, or community organization. Benefit from the Coalition’s expertise. In addition to teaching classes, CDE will train your staff as financial management teachers.
With a grant from your corporation, agency, or foundation, CDE will teach financial education classes that you choose to sponsor. CDE will also train staff members at schools or social service organizations so that they are better equipped to inform their students or clients about personal financial matters.
