Financial Literacy Project (FLP)

The Financial Literary Project (FLP) aims to improve financial literacy in the local Philadelphia community through community education and assistance with tax filings.

What we do:

We provide community education on Financial Literacy topics and tax filing assistance to local communities

How we do it:

Through community education with the Philadelphia Bar Association Business Sector and the Consumer Bankruptcy Assistance Project, volunteers present at local middle and high schools on basic financial literacy topics. We also work with Campaign for Working Families and Ceiba Philadelphia to become trained to assist clients in marginalized communities with their tax returns at tax centers throughout Philadelphia during tax season.

How and when can I join:

Interested volunteers can sign up here or email FLP’s President, Riann Winget.

What skills will I develop:

Public speaking, tax training, financial literacy, community engagement
