School of Economics

Volunteers - at two locations

School of Economics is opening a new location at UMB in downtown Kansas City, MO. Please note that volunteer opportunities are marked "KC" or "Blue Springs".

At both places, students in grades 4-6 will learn and apply financial skills. They will each have a job, earn paychecks, and make consumer spending decisions about “needs” and “wants”. Their entrepreneurial businesses will be producing and selling food and craft items (including your lunch).

During a 4-hour marketplace simulation, you can help students take out a loan and understand the concept of interest and paying expenses like rent and taxes. Some volunteers will work one-on-one with young bank tellers, cashing checks and taking deposits. Others can help in the shops, where producing merchandise, staying within budget, and customer service are important.

Schools attending on the dates listed are all considered LMI with >50% enrollment in free and reduced lunch programs. Contact me if you need more details. School of Economics appreciates help from the financial community in delivering reality-based education.

Coffee, tea, and water bottles are available. Volunteers will get our currency with which to purchase lunch of chicken nuggets, BBQ sandwich, quesadillas, etc. or you can bring a packed lunch if preferred. Dress is casual with comfortable shoes for standing. Thank you!
