Volunteer

If you’re ready to roll up your sleeves, Young Americans has a volunteer job for you!  You can help youth get the financial education that will give them a head start on developing healthy financial habits.  Our volunteer needs are growing as enrollment in key programs increased 15% last year with continued increased demand this year.

Corporate Volunteer Opportunities

Our corporate volunteers provide invaluable help in assisting students running Young AmeriTowne, International Towne and YouthBiz. Most corporate sponsors join us as a Send-a-School sponsor which provides scholarship for low-income schools to participate in our programs.  As a Send-a-School donor, you gain access to our day-of-towne volunteer opportunities.  In 2017, Young Americans awarded $108,034 in scholarships to 109 deserving schools and 8,806 deserving students through the Send-a-School program.  To get involved in Send-a-School, please contact Betsy Sklar at 303-320-3245 or bsklar@yacenter.org.

Individual Volunteer Opportunities

We also need individuals to help with program delivery. We are particularly interested in community members who share our vision of a Colorado where children grow up ready to be money-wise.  These opportunities include serving as a judge for YouthBiz shark-tank style pitch competitions in area middle schools or as a mystery shoppers for YouthBiz Marketplaces.
