Resource for our 2019 “Great American Teach-In” Volunteers

Nov. 7, 2019

By Maureen Busch, Vice President, Compliance and CRA Officer

For those of you volunteering to help educate our youth on the all the fabulous and dynamic careers they will have to choose from–THANK YOU!

If you are looking for additional resources to help you talk about not only your career, but to get our youth thinking about their own careers, we are here to help!

Below are links to a Facilitator Guide and Student Worksheet that you can use to help students explore a myriad of career opportunities that may interest them. The Student Worksheet includes a link to the U.S. Department of Labor-sponsored careeronstop.org website where they can gain insight on careers that may be of interest to them, such as what the career involves and how they might prepare for it. The materials below were adapted from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s (CFPB’s) youth financial literacy activities located on the CFPB’s website.

I am fortunate to see the work of the CFPB from a close vantage point. Currently, I serve on the CFPB’s Community Bank Advisory Council, where Director Kathleen Kraninger and Bureau staff keep us abreast of educational resources available and financial literacy initiatives, such as the CFPB’s Start Small, Save Up campaign. Through this campaign, the CFPB is working to encourage consumers to create, maintain, and grow savings accounts as part of their overall financial well-being. The CFPB has created numerous free financial educational resources available to the public, which can be accessed from the Practitioner Resources tab on its home page.
