About this Event

A key step in helping children and families move toward self-sufficiency is preparing youth and young adults to succeed in school and in life. You can help by joining us for our sixth annual Unite for Teen Financial Literacy effort!

COVID-19 continues to create learning barriers for local students; There is a consistent need for fresh, engaging educational content outside the standard curriculum.

Although volunteers may not be able to visit schools in person, United Way of Greater Cincinnati (UWGC) once again will partner with Junior Achievement to utilize an adapted lesson plan that volunteers will share with students virtually cross all seventh-grade Cincinnati Public Schools (CPS) classrooms.

How will it work? It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3!

  1. Training will be provided by UWGC, CPS and Junior Achievement to ensure volunteers feel prepared and comfortable with the content. When you sign-up, you'll receive a confirmation email that includes next steps (scroll to the "Additional Information" section of the confirmation email to find these details). Due to the new structure of this effort, training is mandatory!
  2. Make it your own! Volunteers will record themselves teaching the lesson and submit your videos to Junior Achievement for review by Jan. 22, 2021. We also encourage volunteers to share a little about their career pathways and the challenges and opportunities they faced along the way.
  3. UWGC, Junior Achievement and CPS will review the videos and distribute them across all seventh-grade classrooms to be shared with students during the week of Feb. 15, 2021.

As a united community, we need your participation. Our goal is to recruit at least 50 volunteers to share their stories and expertise with students. Sign up today!
