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 schools and youth organizations on topics related to financial literacy. During tax season, we also work with Campaign for Working Families and Ceiba Philadelphia to assist clients in marginalized communities with their tax returns at tax centers throughout Philadelphia.

How and when can I join:

Interested volunteers can sign up here or email FLP’s President, Josephine Phillips.

What skills will I develop:

Public speaking, tax training, financial literacy, community engagement
