Financial Planning Volunteer Opportunity with Tubman

TubmanIn partnership with the Foundation for Financial Planning (FFP) and Association of Financial Planning (AFP) of Minnesota, Tubman is excited to announce several volunteer opportunities for Certified Financial Planners, Certified Divorce Financial Analysts and Financial Planners! Tubman is looking for volunteers to provide ongoing financial planning services, including workshops and one-on-one financial planning appointments at each of its three locations: Tubman Center East (Maplewood), Tubman Center West (Minneapolis) and the Chrysalis Center (Minneapolis).

 Tubman helps women, children and families struggling with relationship violence, substance abuse and mental health. Throughout the Twin Cities, Tubman provides safe shelter, legal services, counseling, elder care resources, youth programming and community education while guiding and sustaining individuals and families on the journey from chaos and fear to healing and restoration.

 Tubman is the state’s largest provider of domestic violence services, with over 20% of all Minnesota shelter beds for women and children experiencing family violence. The agency offers a full complement of services including family violence shelter and transitional housing; mental and chemical health assessment, treatment, and support; legal services; parenting education and child care; youth programs and in-school violence prevention; resource counseling, financial literacy and job readiness education; caregiver support and elder care resources; and community education and professional training.

Current volunteer needs:
Currently Tubman is looking for Financial Workshop Facilitator volunteers to provide financial planning workshops one to two times per month on Tuesday afternoons from 1-2 pm at our Maplewood location. Tubman and the Foundation for Financial Planning have worked together to develop tailored curriculum for these workshops. Workshop volunteers will use this curriculum, in addition to other resources that will be provided. Topics include budgeting, saving and investing, credit, debt, identity theft and credit card fraud.

 Due to the unique nature of client needs at Tubman, we do require all volunteer to attend Tubman’s Volunteer Training Series. The next opportunity to attend this training is in August of 2016.

 If you or any of your colleagues are interested in sharing your financial expertise, as well as a unique and rewarding service opportunity, please contact Julia Sisson (612-767-6544), the Jobs, Education and Finance Coordinator at Tubman.
