Calling all youth! Get paid to learn about personal finances!
Looking for a way to help your kids or grand kids begin learning about money and personal finances? What if they could get paid to learn? As part of our efforts to help educate our young members and local youth, EECU partners with Googolplex, an effort of the Credit Union National Association (CUNA), to help students learn the fundamentals of money management through fun, interactive materials, and they’re looking to hire youth for the upcoming school year.
Googolplex is seeking responsible young people with diverse backgrounds for 12 paid positions on its youth editorial board. No travel is necessary—applicants are welcome from all over the country.
Board membership requires a one-year commitment, starting in June, 2013. Payment is based on age level, and openings are available in three age brackets for the 2013-2014 school year:
- 5-Spot Clubhouse Crew (grades 3-5)
- AJ’s Super Youth Team (grades 6-8)
- C-Note Teenage Panel (grades 9-12)
Youth who are a part of the Googolplex editorial board gain numerous benefits, including payment, experience writing and evaluating consumer-related articles, and opportunities to play credit union-friendly online games. It’s a fantastic way for kids to learn about money while also having fun.
If a young person you know is interested in a position, or would like more information, have them contact Laurel Purves, Googolplex youth editorial board liaison by March 8, 2013.
