Volunteer Opportunity: WHF Foundation Financial Literacy Program
The WHF Foundation is pleased to announce its continuing financial literacy program partnership with residents of Calvary Women's Services. One 8-week session is scheduled as follows:
Session 1 – October 6 to November 24, 2015
Taught by WHF volunteers who received training on the FDIC Money Smart curriculum, the program helps the women gain the knowledge they need to make wise financial decisions when they leave Calvary to live independently. Each weekly session lasts 1.5 hours at Calvary, located just minutes past the National's baseball stadium. A volunteer training opportunity is planned for March 17, 2015 at KL Gates. See website calendar for details.
