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. NCACPA is partnering with the North Carolina Council on Economic Education (NCCEE) on outreach efforts regarding this legislation. As one of our first steps, we need to update the NCACPA list of financial literacy volunteers.
So, what does it mean to be a financial literacy volunteer?
Financial literacy volunteers are NCACPA members who lend their time and knowledge to help educate and support high school students. Volunteers are notified of upcoming opportunities via email.* 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? Complete our interest form to be contacted by NCACPA staff when opportunities become available. If you are unable to participate in an event, simply disregard the invitation; however, if you would like to participate, notify our staff by email. Our goal is to make volunteering to support financial literacy and the mandated legislation for high schools as simple as possible!
*You can be removed from the email list any time by notifying [email protected].
