There are many ways to use your talents in partnership with the Financial Planning Association of Greater St. Louis.
Some opportunities take no more than a couple hours of your time and others allow you to see the impact you can have with a longer commitment.
Volunteer to serve the St. Louis community
One-on-one financial counseling whether at a one day event like at the Financial Planning Day offered each October or offered individually through military outreach programs throughout the year can be a very rewarding way to give back to the community.
If teaching classes and workshops is more in line with your skill set, consider helping with MoneySmart Week each spring, or the other opportunities to teach that arise throughout the year. Tax prep assistance through the Tax Assistance Program is an opportunity to serve as well.
Training and materials are provided. If any of these sound interesting to you, contact us at [email protected]
Volunteer to serve on one of our committees
A good way to connect with other professionals, and to further strengthen financial planning as a profession in the St. Louis area is to become involved by service on committees.
