Financial Fair Volunteers Needed

We’re looking for volunteers to help students. No experience necessary! 

From May 8-19, 8th graders will participate in the Financial Literacy Fair at the Kirkwood Linn County Regional Center in Hiawatha during the mornings. In class, students learn about life decisions that affect financial well-being. Based on their interests, they select a career, and determine gross and net salaries.  Then they attend The Fair to face the reality of their financial decisions.

Join the Fun! 

A quick 30 minute volunteer training is given before students arrive.  We need over 400 volunteers to serve over 3,000 students!
