Money Matters! is an interactive ﬁnancial aid literacy curriculum designed by 10,000 Degrees for high school students. Participating students juggle set budgets and flexible pricing for college-related expenses, including books, transportation, electronics, and housing. Students rotate between 9 stations that are manned by 10,000 Degrees staff and volunteers and are challenged to make difficult budgeting decisions, including being encouraged to spend more than they should on products and services they more than likely will not need! Students leave with a new appreciation for the many challenges of making ends meet while also realizing college is affordable.
Individual and group volunteer opportunities are available! All volunteers will be placed at a station to sell items to students visiting their table. Volunteers can “upsell” students on expensive items or they can help them pick the “financially responsible” item. Money Matters is an amazing opportunity to see 10,000 Degrees Fellows and programming in action.
All individuals will receive an email 2 weeks prior to the workshop with details around parking, address, check-in instructions, etc.
Some events are still finalizing dates and times, please check back for new information and updates.
