Since 2005, the BBA’s M. Ellen Carpenter Financial Literacy Program has been providing high school students in Massachusetts with the tools to make informed financial decisions. Through classroom presentations and a visit to the U.S. Bankruptcy Court, over 5,800 students have been reached by our volunteers. Topics include Finance & Budgeting, Using Credit & Credit Cards, Financing a Large Purchase, and the final session, Consequences of Poor Financial Management.

If you’re looking for a new volunteer opportunity, this may be the perfect fit for you. After attending the training, you’ll be equipped to educate high school students about the importance of making smart financial decisions. As a volunteer, you’ll work in pairs to lead a one-hour session in the classroom. If you have any questions, please contact Cassandra Shavney at
