I work for a non-profit to provide social/emotional services to at-risk youth in the high school setting. Every semester for the last three years, the Womens Resource has provided a skilled and well liked facilitator to conduct the Project LEAD group for girls on my campus. They love it! They meet weekly for 10 sessions of financial literacy and leadership skills. The sessions are interactive, educational and fun for the girls. Each semester is wrapped up with a panel presentation of alums who share their higher education and career experiences.

The Great!

The mission of financial literacy for women and girls is critical to the economic well-being of our community. TWR is a shining example of business giving back to community and community becoming healthier and a better place for business. This is well-run organization that relies on an army of volunteers to carry out its mission. It is a wonderful partnership between corporate and non-profit. The organization is especially adept at streamlining the volunteer experience so that the community realizes maximum benefit from its volunteers.

The Great!

Teaching basic personal finance and budgeting to low income women and girls has been very rewarding for me as a volunteer. The students learn how to control their money rather than it controling them. We provide essential skills such as developing and utilizing a household budget, understanding your checking account, etc. The women are grateful to learn something that will reduce thier stress and give them some control over thier lives. The organization makes it so easy to volunteer, they provide the curriculum, handouts and clients. We volunteers just need to pick a time and location to teach and show up. It's wonderful.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have seen women and high school girls give testamonials on how these classes have changed thier lives for the better. They've learned how to set goals and how to achieve them. It's so gratifying to see the pride they feel in those accomplishments.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would like to see more hands on tools to use in teaching, to make the classes more effective and interesting for the students.
